      New LatAm Doctors Training in Cuba

      Habana, Apr 1 (Prensa Latina) Cuba kicked off a new program to train
      Latin American physicians after an accord signed in August by
      Presidents Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez in western Pinar del Rio
      province.

      This was expressed Friday by Deputy Public Health Minister Roberto
      Gonzalez, when summing up the 4th International Congress on
      Emergencies and Intensive Care held this week at Havana's
      International Conference Center.

      In the presence of 325 experts from 16 countries, the official
      recalled that over 100,000 doctors will be trained over 10 years in a
      study program validated by the world's best universities.

      Gonzalez stated the importance of emergencies and intensive care that
      has helped achieve an 80-year-old life expectancy in Cuba and infant
      mortality rate lower than five per each 1,000 live births.

      In the closing ceremony, Dr. Pedro Velez, member of the meeting's
      organizing committee, stated that the application of these issues
      will increase survival and improve living standard in cases of acute
      heart attack, one of the main causes of death in the world, and
      cranial-encephalic trauma, among others.
