iciHaiti - Health : The Cuban Medical Brigade, nearly 20 years in Haiti
In 2017, the Cuban Medical Brigade in Haiti treated more than 2 million patients (2,062,576) a substantial increase over 2016, said Lorenzo Mojena, deputy director of the Cuban mission who recalled that last year, Brigade members also completed 1,704,209 community visits, which resulted in the diagnosis of more than 5,000 patients.

The Brigade, that will soon celebrate 20 years of uninterrupted mission in Haiti, has during all its years "assisted 174,667 births, with a clear decrease in the number of caesareans. In the 10 departments of the country, more than 600 doctors, nurses and technicians from the Greater Antilles assisted 5.788 births in 2017, ensuring the well-being of mothers and children," said Lorenzo Mojena.

In 2017, the Brigade reveals that the number of cholera cases has significantly decreased. In 2017 alone 17 patients were registered for an infection rate of 0.02 per 10,000 inhabitants, the lowest that Haiti has experienced since the beginning of the epidemic.

To conclude this brief report Lorenzo Mojena said that last year in Haiti "we performed 40,842 surgeries, including 10,040 major surgeries. "
