Join us as we discuss the work that the Pan American Health Organization-World Health Organization (PAHO-WHO) is currently undertaking in Cuba. Topics covered include: the multi-faceted public health challenges the island faces, the organization’s principles of cooperation, and how Pittsburgh-based international partnerships have positively affected the Cuban health system's resilience-building and sustainability measures.

Dr. Duniesky Cintra Cala, who has worked extensively in Cuba’s health system, specializing in Comprehensive and Integrated General Medicine, and Justo Manuel Cardenas Rodriguez, a PAHO-WHO administrator with over 25 years of experience in the field of public health, are the event's invited speakers.
