Lately, PAHO’s director Jarbas Barbosa stressed the importance of taking advantage of Cuba’s capabilities to produce medicines for the region’s sake.
“Thank you, Dr. Jose Angel Portal, Cuba’s Health Minister, for the productive meeting during #WHA76 where we talked about the significance of strengthening regional innovation and increasing the production capacity of vaccines and medicines in solidarity,” Barbosa tweeted.
This was a debated issue during their conversations held in the context of the 76th World Health Assembly that took place past week in Geneva, Switzerland.
