HAVANA - A Cuban doctor says the Caribbean nation is eliminating
longstanding restrictions on health care professionals' overseas travel as
part of a broader migration reform.
The doctor says hospital directors met Saturday with Health Minister
Roberto Morales and were told of the new policy, effective Jan. 14.
For many years Cuban physicians have been limited in their ability to
travel or had to undergo cumbersome bureaucratic procedures.
But now they are supposed to be treated "like any other citizen" when it
comes to traveling abroad.
The doctor was not authorized to talk to foreign journalists and spoke to
The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday.
