Deputy President Mabuza to welcome and address the returning Cuban-trained medical students at the OR Tambo International Airport

Deputy President David Mabuza will tomorrow, 07 July 2018, welcome 260 Cuban-trained medical students who are returning to South Africa at a reception ceremony to be held at the OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.

Deputy President Mabuza is the Chairperson of the Human Resource Development Council of South Africa, which looks into issues of human capital and skills development in the country. The return of these students adds to the much needed pool of qualified doctors that will contribute to a better health for the country and its population.

These students will complete their final sixth-year studies and integration into the South African health system, as part of the Nelson Mandela Fidel Castro (NMFC) medical collaboration programme of the Department of Health.

Deputy President Mabuza will be accompanied by the Minister of Health, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi and other senior government officials and Cuban Ambassador in South Africa, Mr Rodolfo Benites Version. South Africa and Cuba have maintained longstanding diplomatic relations since 1994 that resulted in various bilateral agreements on public health including the training of South African medical students in Cuba to sustain the health system.
