Local media reports cited brigade coordinator, Orlando Alvarez as saying that the doctors are offering their services to all Hondurans needing medical assistance.
Alvarez recalled that the doctors arrived in Honduras 17 years ago to offer assistance in the aftermath of hurricane Mitch, but later the two governments signed a protocol to maintain the medical services for a longer time in different regions with scarce medical support.
Since that time, the services included over 775 thousand surgeries and saved nearly 300 thousand lives. Also included are lab and radiography services.
Along with all that, some 1 thousand 345 Honduran doctors graduated from the Havana-based Latin American School of Medicine. / CNA.
