To continue reducing, or at least maintaining, the very low infant mortality rate - 5.3 for every 1,000 live births last year - is one of the objectives of children's doctors in Cuba, who are meeting to have in-depth discussions on childhood illnesses and treatment for neonatal and pediatric patients.
At the opening of the Congress, the participants sent greetings to Fidel Castro, described by members of the Cuban Pediatrics Society as their historic president.
