Buenos Aires to cooperate with Cuba on healthcare, sports
The province — Argentina’s most populous and largest — is dedicating an extra $127 million to primary healthcare this year, with another budget boost expected next year.
Under the agreements, Buenos Aires will obtain 500,000 doses of a leptospirosis vaccine from Cuba, work with Cuba on a neurocognitive development program for children, and obtain technology for the Tomás Perón bio-laboratory for pharmaceutical research and development.
Two Cuban sports experts will assist in the training of personnel in the province; the assistance program may be expanded to include boxing.
Science Minister José Miyar Barrueco was in Argentina for the signing.
