Cuban Doctors' arrival in Kenya [PHOTOS]

Kisumu Governor Prof Anyang' Nyong'o received the 50 doctors in Nairobi.

The 50 will be spread across all the 47 counties, with Nairobi receiving a large share of three of the first batch, as the country awaits the second batch on Thursday.

The Cuban doctors are set to embark on training the Kenyan medics for two years in family healthcare among others issues, even as their salary continues to stir up emotions of Kenyan doctors.

The fifty were received at the Jomo Kenyatta international Airport on Tuesday night by Kisumu Governor Prof Anyang’ Nyong’o, who was in company of Health Chief Administrative Secretary Rashid Aman and the Cuban Ambassador to Kenya Raúl Rodríguez Ramos.

Others included senior government officials from the Ministry of Health and County Governors.

The Council of Governors exuded confidence in the fifty, adding that Kenya was ready to learn something from the Cuban healthcare system.

“Kenya is eager and willing to learn from Cuba who has managed to eradicate malaria & improve health indicators with infant mortality currently standing at 4.1 per 1000 live births,” the Council of Governors said via twitter.
