Congo today has a group of 274 new doctors trained in Cuba, who will join the service after an internship period in hospitals in the country.

The graduates, mostly general practitioners and technicians, will begin their training stage in national health institutions, where they will be able to acquire experience before being officially recruited and assigned, according to the Journal de Brazza portal.

The Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Technological Innovation, Delphine Edith Emmanuel, welcomed the health professionals upon their arrival last December 31, together with the director of the cabinet of the Minister of Health and Population, Jean Ignace Tendelet.

Emmanuel assured then that the country took all the necessary measures to guarantee their professional integration after eight years of studies in the Caribbean nation.

The graduates are part of a government program through which more than a thousand students traveled to Cuba between 2013 and 2014, with the purpose of studying medicine to make up for the deficit of health personnel in Congo.

The first group returned to the country in 2020.
