      UNDP Associate Administrator highlights Cuban support in Haiti

      QUITO, April 1.—UN Under-Secretary General Rebeca Grynspan stated here that without the presence of Cuban doctors in Haiti, it would have been impossible to respond to the cholera outbreak in that country.

      Grynspan, also UN Development Program (UNDP) Associate Administrator, informed PL that one of the most heartening things she saw in Haiti was the Cuban aid and the people’s appreciation of Cuban doctors.

      Cuban medical aid was present in Haiti before the earthquake and, impressively she said, it was Cuban doctors who involved many Haitians who studied medicine in Cuba in practicing within their country.

      She commented that she knows Haiti very well, since she was very involved after the January 2010 earthquake and traveled there regularly over a two year period, as a member of the Haiti Recovery Commission created at the time.

      Grynspan emphasized that there is a new element in the difficult Haitian reality and that is Latin American involvement there, an involvement that did not exist in the past.
