President Andrés Manuel López Obrador justified this Monday the decision of his government to hire around 500 Cuban medical specialists pointing out that it is to cover the lack of care in the poorest areas of the country and where Mexican professionals do not want to work.

The federal president explained that This decision was made based on a sample of Mexican doctors and their refusal to provide care in marginalized and rural areas where specialist care is needed.

“We are hiring all the doctors, but since we already know that we are not going to have to cover the entire network of health centers and rural medical units, of hospitals, that is why we are already making this agreement to bring 500 doctors,” explained the chief. of the Federal Executive at a press conference from the National Palace.

Since the announcement was made, within the framework of López Obrador’s visit to the island last week and where he signed the agreement with Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel, Mexican doctors have criticized that the federal government does not hire them to provide services to the health system.

“Now why bring doctors from Cuba? We answered, because we do not have doctors, because the system of corruption that those doctors defended, that those doctors sign, stopped investing in public education”, accused the federal president.

This morning, PAN member Ricardo Anaya criticized the contract that Mexico will sign with Cuba on health matters, pointing out that only the dictatorship will be financed.

But why don’t doctors want to go to the mountains to work? Is your denial REAL?
