And it only gets better.

In an attempt to boost the number of doctors in the country, South Africa signed a co- operation agreement with Cuba in 1995. South Africa has since recruited hundreds of Cuban doctors to practice here, while South Africa is able to send medical students to Cuba to study.

South Africa believes the Cuban opportunity will help train the doctors it so desperately needs for the implementation of the National Health Insurance Scheme.

Other agreements exist with Tunisia and Iran, as well as between Johannesburg Hospital and Maputo Central Hospital.


Not to knock Cuban physicians, I've been there, met several, they are not stupid, but their skills/technology is way outdated. But I guess it is better than nothing.

I wonder when we'll make the same arrangements?
