Cuba has a long standing tradition of rendering medical aid in Haiti.


A few years ago, a medical brigade of 1,200 Cubans has operated all over the earthquake-torn and cholera-infected Haiti. They have treated over 30,000 cholera patients (around 40% of the total cholera patients) in Haiti and they arrived immediately after the earthquake struck. Presently, about 700 Cuban doctors are working in Haiti. Over 800 Haitian doctors have received medical training in Cuba. According to Rodriguez, Cuba is willing to be a part of the trilateral project with the U.S. because it could have a substantial reach with greater impact on Haiti's health situation including areas like fight on drug trafficking and terrorism.
