Published — Saturday 3 August 2013

A team of doctors in rare specialties from Cuba will arrive in the
Kingdom after the Eid holidays to man some of the public sector
hospitals, a senior official from the Ministry of Health announced here
“The first group of 30 doctors will work for a period of three months
only,” Dr. Aqeel Al-Ghamdi, assistant undersecretary to the Ministry of
Health for therapeutic medicine and hospitals, said, adding that the
contract will span a period of three years.
The agreement for the deployment of doctors was signed last month in
Riyadh between the two governments. The accord was inked by Dr. Mohammed
Hamza Kosheim, deputy health minister for Planning and Development, and
Cuban Ambassador Enrique Anriquet.
Al-Ghamdi said the first group of doctors will include 12 rare and
specialized cadres, including the intensive care unit (ICU), anesthesia,
surgery, neurosurgery, retina, and newborns, he added. They will conduct
tests on patients, follow up on their cases, review work procedures, as
well as engage in training and education, he noted.
The official said that under the agreement, 30 doctors would arrive from
Cuba every three months and those who have already completed their
three-month period will return to their country. He also pointed out
that the program for visiting doctors is currently operating with a
number of countries, including Pakistan, Egypt, the United States and
European countries.
Mohammed Kosheim said the doctors will be affiliated with a special
program entitled the “Visiting Doctors” program, which has been tailored
to meet the ministry’s requirements designed to attract the best
consultants in in-demand and rare specialties, he said.
Cuban Ambassador Anriquet said that Saudi-Cuban relations have seen
significant progress in the recent years. “This agreement comes at the
forefront of constructive cooperation between the two countries, which
will be to provide our experience and our efforts in the field of
health. We seek to contribute to strengthening and improving healthcare
in hospitals and health centers in the Kingdom.”
The envoy said doctors, consultants and specialists in nursing have been
carefully selected and are of high quality and that they speak fluent
