Three Pakistani youth to study medicine in Cuba

Islamabad, Apr 16 (Prensa Latina) Three young Pakistanis have been chosen to study medicine in Cuba as part of the educational program conceived by the historic leader of the Revolution, Fidel Castro, diplomatic sources reported on Tuesday.

Cuba’s Ambassador to Pakistan, Zenén Caro, reported on social media that Amir, Muhammad Annas, and Hamza received the necessary documents to travel to Cuba. They will begin their university studies in the new academic year.

Caro described it as a day of satisfaction that the young Pakistanis from Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and North Waziristan provinces received their visas.

Cuba is known for its free healthcare system with high-quality professionals that it has managed to maintain despite its complex economic situation, mainly due to the economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed by the United States for more than 60 years.

Cuba’s medical training programs are also internationally acknowledged for the excellence of its universities.

Inaugurated by Fidel Castro on November 15, 1999, Cuba’s Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) has become a university of excellence in the comprehensive training of healthcare professionals.
