Cuba, WHO to cooperate on generic drugs
Havana: Cuba and the World Health Organization have signed an agreement for technology transfer and production of generic drugs.
Health Minister Roberto Morales and visiting WHO Director General Margaret Chan signed the agreement on behalf of the respective sides here Friday, Xinhua reported.
"I am very pleased to sign this agreement with the island because it defines the strategy for our cooperation," Chan said, adding "Cuba has a comprehensive health model, from which many countries can learn."
