Kenya has received 79 more Cuban doctors in the second such deployment, announced the Council of Governors.
As part of the fulfillment of a 2017 deal with Cuba, the first group of Cuban doctors arrived in the country in 2018.
This follows an agreement signed by Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe and his Cuban counterpart Dr. Jose Angel Portal Miranda on the doctors' exchange programme between the two countries.
“The Cuban specialists have completed the induction at the Kenya School of Government and will be deployed in due course. In order to meet the demands more specialists will be sourced from Cuba and will arrive in the country in due course,” said the Council’s chairman Martin Wambora.
Wambora said the 79 medical specialists will be deployed to county hospitals on October 25.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
