About 11,000 free medical consults have been provided by Cuban collaborators and their Bolivian colleagues in the first two days of the Cochabamba Tropic Health Fair, which ends today.

The most demanded specialties so far are Comprehensive General Medicine, Ophthalmology, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Gynecology, Orthopedics and Traumatology, Allergology, Otorhinolaryngology and Dermatology.

Thousands of low-income people from Cochabamba regions come here to receive free high-quality medical care offered by collaborators from the Cuban Medical Brigade in Bolivia and professionals from the local Ministry of Health.

Boosted by the government of President Evo Morales, the initiative is aimed at bringing medical services closer to the residents in faraway communities.

Since Friday, August 18, patients suffering from cataract and other eye diseases have also been treated, the medicines prescribed are also free of charge.
