Havana, May 24 (RHC)-- Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero congratulated Cuban public health workers who, for 59 years, have brought solidarity and humanism to the whole world.

"Receive recognition and warm congratulations," he posted on Twitter. He reiterated the service provided to the nations that have requested the support of doctors from Cuba.

On May 23, 1963, Cuba began medical cooperation in Algeria, with which professionals showed the world the value of medicine in times of the Revolution.

Since then, the Caribbean island has served in 165 countries with more than 605,698 medical collaborators, and Cuban doctors are currently working in 59 countries, according to the Ministry of Public Health.

Since the Henry Reeve contingent was created in 2005 by Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro, 88 brigades were sent to 56 countries. Three of them faced Ebola in West Africa with 265 collaborators, and 58 did so during Covid-19 in 42 countries.
