CUBA-HEALTH- Cuban strengthens medical collaboration with Cambodia


HAVANA, Cuba, The government of Cuba has strengthened its relationship with the Kingdom of Cambodia, located in Southeast Asia.

The agreement was ratified on Friday during a meeting between Cuba’s Minister of Public Health, José Angel Portal Miranda, and Or Vandine, Secretary of State of the Cambodian Ministry of Health.

According to Vandine, she was glad to be on the Island to learn about its healthcare system. She conveyed her government’s appreciation that Cambodian students can become doctors in Cuba’s medical schools, in line with her country’s intention to expand this service based on the Cuban experience.

Both parties also discussed matters of common interest, such as scientific and academic exchanges—especially in the treatment of chronic non-communicable diseases such as cancer and diabetes—and the possibility of promoting talks between their regulatory authorities to facilitate the introduction in Cambodia of Cuban biotechnology products and to train Cambodian staff on their use.

For part, Portal Miranda reasserted Cuba’s commitment to work together with Cambodia in order to boost cooperation and keep working for the benefit of both peoples.

In addition to a Memorandum of Understanding signed in September, Cuba and Cambodia rely on an action plan approved during the visit of the Cuban minister to that country in October.
