      Cubans Treat 600,000 Pakistanis

      Havana, Jan 31 (Prensa Latina) Cuban doctors have treated 600,000
      Pakistanis including 300,000 women at tent hospitals they have been
      running and other medical facilities in Pakistan since last October
      to help the victims of the killer earthquake that rocked that
      country.

      Members of the Henry Reeve International Medical Brigade are also
      helping to train Pakistani medicine students, according to a report
      published Tuesday by Juventud Rebelde newspaper in Havana.

      The team´s coordinator, Professor Jose Menendez, delivered the
      conference "Health under conditions of natural disasters," while
      opening the program at the Islamic International Medical College.

      Menendez extolled the work of the Henry Reeve brigade in Pakistan,
      following the earthquake of October 8, and the Cuban experience to
      cope with hurricanes frequently hitting the small Caribbean island.

      Cuban physicians will also teach issues related to primary medical
      care, infectious diseases, the Maternal-Infant Program, chronic
      non-transmissible diseases and community approach.

      Pakistani Brigadier Sana Ullah Khan, who is the deputy chief of the
      Islamic International Medical College, expressed his appreciation for
      Cuba´s cooperation.
