Havana.- Cuba will expand its medical assistance to the people of Jamaica, where its mission in that country will be enlarged.
According to healthcare authorities, 290 professionals will join the group, in response to a request by Kingston.
Collaboration with Jamaica in the medical field started in 1976 with a brigade of 14 physicians, following a request from its government.
Recently, the ministries of health from the two countries reviewed tested Cuban professionals, and those who will join the mission, totaling 259 medical workers, were chosen.
Eighteen of them will work in the Miracle Mission, thanks to which more than 16,000 eye surgeries have been performed to restore sight to a large part of the Jamaican population.
