Cuba: The Ministries of Public Health of Cuba and Ghana has signed an agreement on Wednesday to restore medical cooperation between the two nations.

The Cuban Embassy issued a press release in which it stated that this agreement between both the nations provides for the provision of healthcare services in Ghana by the Cuban Medical Brigades.

The sources informed that this agreement was signed by Ghanaian Health Minister Kwaka Agyeman-Manu and Cuban Ambassador – Pedro Luis Despaigne Gonzalez on the part of the Cuban Minister of Public Health – Dr Jose Angel Portal Miranda.

The government of Ghana and the citizens have always approved their condemnation of the criminal economic, commercial & financial blockade which the United States imposes on Cuba for nearly around 60 years.

Various international organizations and nations have criticized the blockade of the United States imposed on Cuba and asked the Joe Biden government to lift sanctions from the Caribbean island.

Cuba has an embassy in the capital city of Guyana – Accra. Ghana has its embassy in the largest and capital city of Cuba that is – Havana.

Last year, both the nations celebrated their 60 years of diplomatic relations with a political-cultural activity coordinated jointly between the Cuban embassy and the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Ghana at the Accra International Conference Centre.

If we look at Cuba’s foreign policy, it has been fluid throughout the history depending on world events and other variables.

Without heavy Soviet support and its primary trading partner, Cuba became frequently isolated in the late – 1980s and early 1990s after the fall of the USSR and the end of the Cold War. After all of this, Cuba opened up more with the rest of the world again, starting in the late – 1990s when they have since entered bilateral cooperation with several South American countries.
