This afternoon the Ministry of Health & Wellness welcomed the second group of Cuban Collaborators from the Cuban Medical Brigade to Belize. The group was welcomed by the Deputy Director of Health Services in Nursing, Ms. Lizett Bell, along with the International Affairs Officer, Ms. Dianie Ek.
A total of 36 collaborators arrived this week. They will be deployed across all our health regions and at our primary referral hospital, the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital Authority to support in our Covid19 response efforts.
We extend our appreciation to the Government and the people of the Republic of Cuba.
