(Video) Cuban doctors welcome back to Mauritania after contract termination

Mauritanian government has decided to bring back the Cuban doctors who had earlier worked in an hospital in the city of Nouadhibou. The doctors left the country due to non-renewal of their contracts many months ago.

The Ministry of Health of Mauritanian has announced that an agreement has been reached with the Cuban Minister of Public Health, José Angel Portal Miranda, allowing the return of these doctors.

The agreement allows Cuba to send “health professionals, including doctors of different specialties and technicians, to work in local health establishments,”.

Based on a previous agreement between the two countries, some sixty Cuban doctors and health technicians had been working since 2017 in a hospital in Nouadhibou built by the Mauritanian state.

The doctors had to leave Mauritania in April amid strong protests from the inhabitants who demanded the renewal of the agreement.

This Cuban medical team stood out for the quality of its consultations and treatments, attracting patients from all regions of the country.

On February 20, Saudi Arabia granted Mauritania $55 million in financing to cover the cost of building and equipping a new hospital complex in Nouakchott, which will be the largest in the country.
