A new group of Cuban internationalist doctors arrived in Tanzania to contribute to the African country's health system.

Cuban doctors and nurses will serve at the Muhimbili Hospital, as part of the exchange and cooperation between both nations.

Back in 2017, both the Muhimbili Hospital and the Cuban Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP) signed a two-way collaboration agreement 'which is satisfactorily fulfilled'.

Cuba has sent over 400,000 health professionals to 164 countries throughout its history of cooperation, the MINREX reported.

Faced with the present epidemiological situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Henry Reeve Medical Brigade has fought the pandemic in about 40 nations.
