Newspaper Brasil Popular Highlights Preference for Cuban Female Physicians

Brasilia, Jun 24 (Prensa Latina) The express preference for the care provided by Cuban female physicians who are rendering their services in the Single Healthcare System (SUS) was highlighted here today in the 56th issue of the newspaper Brasil Popular

This is shown by several surveys carried out by academic and scientific institutions, like the State University of Campinas (Unicamp) and the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, said the publication, which recalled the beginning of the More Doctors program, launched in 2013 by then President Dilma Rousseff.

The newspaper added that the Cuban doctors were harassed, disrespected and slandered by Brazilian medical institutions, with support from big media organizations, which are insensitive to the needs of the majority of the people to have health professionals who are willing to do a competitive, humanistic and friendly work.

‘Rapidly, thanks to their competence, ethics and dedication, the Cuban doctors, mainly women, went from being damned to be the favorite by SUS users,’ Brasil Popular pointed out.

The Cuban female doctors, who had to face the racism and machismo with which they were welcomed by Brazilian institutions, are decorated now for their absolute, spontaneous and sincere preference from their patients, who fear that the coup that overthrew Rousseff will affect the program, whose approval rate exceeds 90 percent, the newspaper noted.
