Ocular surgery
Some 100,000 people have so far recovered sight in Bolivia, thanks to the Operation Miracle, a free eye surgery program started with Cuba's support last year.

The achievement was highlighted by President Evo Morales in the opening ceremony of the fifth integral diagnostic hospital in the locality of Aiquile, central department of Cochabamba.

In the act, Morales talked of the unconditional support by the Cuban people and President Fidel Castro, who have done everything possible for his country to have professionals and top-technology equipment in 25 of 40 second-level hospitals committed until the end of the year.

The Operation Miracle has also benefited low-income Argentinean, Peruvian and Brazilian patients who traveled to ophthalmologic centers located in bordering localities to undergo those operations.
