Health care workers on a high rung of human dignity

Paying tribute to health sector workers should be a daily feeling, because of the impact their work has on people’s lives; but every year a special day is marked, with emphasis on this December 3, Latin American Medicine Day.

A marked vocation of service to humanity is the feeling that moves women and men who are dedicated to the noble profession in the field of medicine.

They have the privilege and the commitment to be closer to the human being, because they are in charge of restoring and preserving the most precious treasure that the human being possesses: his health.

In different specialties: doctors, nurses, laboratorians, technicians…, they are essential in society to provide it with well-being and happiness.

Cuban medical personnel have demonstrated to the world their internationalist essence, when thousands and thousands have taken medical assistance to the heights of the Himalayas, to the jungles, to indigenous communities, to cities and populations in situations of peace or war, under intense cold, in aid tasks after earthquakes and natural catastrophes, and in any place of the geography where they are needed.

Every December 3, Latin American Medicine Day is celebrated to pay tribute to the sector, coinciding with the birthday of the Cuban scholar Carlos Juan Finlay y Barrés, born in Camagüey in 1833, who discovered the transmitting agent of yellow fever.

And now, at a time when the country is going through a difficult economic situation, we are even more grateful to those who have bet on staying with their people, overcoming material shortages, lack of medicines and diagnostic means, to continue saving lives.

There is no greater work than the one that involves the health and life of people, that is why those who practice with efficiency and conscience the different medical specialties are at a high level of human dignity.
