Why are thousands of Cuban doctors leaving Brazil?

Brazilians living in poor and under-served regions of the country are wondering what the exit of thousands of Cuban doctors will mean for their future access to healthcare.



Since mid-November Cuba has recalled thousands of doctors from Brazil following calls by president-elect Jair Bolsonaro that the terms of the doctors’ contracts be revised. Among his demands he wants Cuba to pay the doctors in full; at present, Havana takes about 70 percent of the wages earned by doctors serving in Brazil under a WHO-brokered programme called More Doctors, which was started in 2013 under the watch of then-president Dilma Rousseff.
