WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, July 27, 2015) – The first Vanuatu doctors to be trained in Cuba have graduated from the Havana Latin American Medical School.

12 ni-Vanuatu doctors have been training in the Cuban capital for the past seven years on Cuban government scholarships.

The head of Curative Services in Vanuatu, Hensley Garae, and a health analyst, Viran Tovu, attended the graduation ceremony in Havana and thanked Cuba for helping boost the number of doctors in Vanuatu, where they are badly needed.

Vanuatu established diplomatic relations with Cuba on independence in 1980 and a number of Cuban doctors are currently serving in Vanuatu's Vila Central Hospital.
