Our country is ready to send, in the early hours of the morning, 100
clinicians and specialists in Comprehensive General Medicine, who at
dawn tomorrow, Saturday, could be in Houston International Airport,
Texas, the closest to the region struck by the tragedy, in order to be
transferred by air, sea or river to the isolated shelters, facilities
and neighborhoods in the city of New Orleans, where the population and
families that require emergency medical care are.
These Cuban personnel would be carrying backpacks with 24 kilograms of
medications, known to be essential in such situations to save lives, as
well as basic diagnosis kits. They would be prepared to work alone or
in groups of two or more, depending on the circumstances, for as long
Likewise, Cuba is ready to send via Houston, or any other airport of
their choosing, 500 additional specialists in Comprehensive General
Medicine, with the same equipment, who could be at their destination
point at noon or tomorrow afternoon.
A third group of 500 specialists in Comprehensive General Medicine
could be arriving in the morning of Sunday, September 4. Thus, the
1100 said medical doctors, with the resources described with the amount
to 26.4 tons of medications and diagnosis kits, would be caring for the
neediest persons in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina.
These medical doctors have the necessary international experience
and elementary knowledge of the English language that would allow
them to communicate with the patients.
We stand ready waiting for the US authorities' response.
