'Doctor at Home' Is the Law in Mexico City and a Program Without Borders (Secretaria De Salud CDMX)

Cuba's Health Ministry sent a delegation of doctors to Mexico City in order to assess the impact of the program “The Doctor in Your House,” Mexico's Health Ministry reports.

The delegation visited various hospitals and homes of “vulnerable” patients in order to observe the type of medical attention provided in situations of “vulnerability.”

They also found out more about the program “Doctor At Home,” as well as the call center of the program “Distance Medicine.”

Cuban doctors said they felt a real sense of closeness with the patients and medical staff.

The doctors went to specialized hospitals and health centers, where they signed agreements with the local Mexican Health Secretary regarding obesity and diabetes, as well as the training of medical staff participating in “Doctor At Home.”
