Hundreds of Congolese Students to Study Medicine in Cuba

Brazzaville, January 6 (RHC)-- As part of bilateral cooperation relations between Cuba and Congo, nearly 850 young people from that African nation will travel to the island to study medicine.

Congolese Health Minister Francois Ibovi was at the Brazzaville airport of Maya Maya to see off the future medical doctors who, after graduating, will return home to serve their people, the Cuban Foreign Ministry reported on its webpage.

The minister, who was accompanied by Cuban Ambassador Manuel Serrano, expressed his gratitude to the island for offering his people the professional training.

This will be the third group of Congolese students to take courses in Cuba, which joins another 1,200 who are already studying medicine on the island.
