The new Argentine government of President Mauricio Macri has disqualified 380 medical doctors graduated in Cuba, with Health minister Jorge Lemus saying that they do not want more doctors from Cuba.
Lack of medical doctor for the poor
The announcement was made on Monday by Lemus (photo) who argued that Argentina have enough doctors to deploy its health system.
The affected doctors were offering their services in the country´s less favored areas, which will lead to a lack of medical doctors for the people who most need those services, said observers.
Observers said that the measures violates article four of an additional protocol of the Educational Cooperation Accord, signed by Cuba and Argentina in 2007.
This latest measure follows other radical changes made by President Macri, such as the privatization of major state-owned communication companies. — NNN-ACN
