Xiomara Castro, Hondura’s leftist president, struck a deal with Castro, Inc. that has brought nearly 100 Cuban slave doctors to her country, despite the fact that her country has a surplus of doctors, 11,000 of whom are currently unemployed. As one might expect those unemployed doctors are very angry. On top of this, Xiomara’s government is paying Castro, Inc. more for each of the slave doctors than Honduran doctors can ever earn. (Never mind the fact that the slaves only get about 10% of what is paid to Castro, Inc.)

Then there are questions about the poor level of training received in Cuba by these doctors. And worries about the spies and agitators who are part of the medical brigade. Welcome to Latrine America, madhouse of the Western hemisphere.

Loosely translated from Marti Noticias

A group of 96 Cuban doctors arrived last Tuesday in Honduras as part of an agreement between both governments. The arrival of the professionals, who were received by the Honduran Health Minister, Carla Paredes, at Palmerola International Airport, has generated strong criticism from the Honduran Medical College (CMH).

“We have more than 11 thousand unemployed Honduran doctors,” Samuel Santos, president of the organization, assured Martí Noticias, pointing out that while the salary of specialists in his country is around $1300, Cubans are being paid $2000.

“Honduran doctors are offered 28,000 Lempiras per month (about $1137) and specialists 32,000 (about $1300), but to the colleagues who arrive from Cuba, they are paying $2000 more plus accommodation, transportation, and food, things that are not given to nationals,” he said.

“There are 96 Cuban specialists coming to help the public health system,” the minister told local press and assured that the doctors would be sent to hospitals in Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula, the two main cities of Honduras, as well as to remote communities in the country. The official did not specify how much the specialists from the island will be paid.

Santos, on the other hand, has insisted that Cuban medical personnel have not met the requirements to demonstrate their accreditation to the CMH.

The agreement signed by both governments has a duration of two years and, according to the authorities, can be modified by mutual consent.

“These are clearly intelligence groups infiltrated as doctors. We have warned about this,” Honduran activist Juan Flores told Martí Noticias.

“We have informed several US congressmen about this because we need support, we have asked them not to leave us alone and to be more rigorous with the government of Xiomara Castro because they are committing many acts of corruption,” he added.
