Anuncio_azul_con_nubes.jpg

Cuba has been an international reference in the prevention and treatment of diabetes, considered a global catastrophe in health, Ileydis Iglesias, director of the National Institute of Endocrinology, said.

In statements to Prensa Latina, in the context of the 1st International Diabetes Congress taking place at the Conference Center in Havana until May 24, the specialist highlighted that Cuba is the country with the best glycemic control of its patients, the Pan-American Health Organization has acknowledged.

This is possible despite the limitations the nation has such as not having a continuous monitoring blood glucose meter or an insulin infusion pump for patients who do not resolve with multiple injections, because they are devices made with US technology.

The school is located in Villa Elvira, a residence which the illustrious patriot Emilio Bacardi Moreau (1844-1922) had built for his wife’s enjoyment on the former El Coral estate, in the neighborhood of Cuabitas, outside of the city, on Boniato Road.Perhaps the rural atmosphere with flowering mangoes and palms, surrounded by green hills, combined with the care artists took in the decoration of buildings and gardens, including a large central fountain, as well as the welcoming dormitories and game rooms, and especially the staff, make clear that there is joy here.”I think the opening of the school has been successful,” said Dr. Triana Mederos, national director of Special Education at the Ministry of Education, “because these students with physical-motor disabilities, these first 67 from the provinces of Las Tunas, Holguín, Granma, Guantánamo and Santiago de Cuba, seem to feel at home, as if they had already studied here several years.”“As you can see,” she said, “centers of this kind imply much effort and resources from the state, and although the fundamental objective is the physical, psychological, and pedagogical rehabilitation of children, they are not compulsory schools, and require the willingness and close involvement of parents.”She added that “programs and strategies are designed on the basis of the extensive experience of our teachers, precise diagnoses and attention from specialists in Public Health, the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, the Cuban Association of the Physically Limited (Aclifim), with the decisive integration of parents and families.”
