La Paz, Jan 22 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian President Evo Morales emphasized that the results of Operation Miracle, with the unconditional Cuban cooperation, allowed more than 450.000 people to see again.

  President Morales after taking office in his second mandate, said in a message to the Bolivian people that those surgeries, which began in 2006 performed by Cuban doctors, are totally free.

Morales also talked about the solidarity mission Moto Mendez, which began last November also with Cuban and Venezuelan cooperation, through which more than 7.000 disabled people were assisted in the towns of Plan Tres Mil (Santa Cruz), Orinoca (Oruro) and El Alto y Viacha (La Paz).

The President pointed out regarding health that in 2005 before the arrival of the new government just 13.500.000 people received medical attention. On the other hand, in 2009 medical attention expanded to cover more than 22.000.000 people who benefited from that service.

He also pointed out another achievement of his administration regarding health: the distribution of 798 ambulances which is a huge number compared to the 29 distributed between 2003 and 2005.

“For the first time in history this service reaches to every municipality of the country”, he said.

According to Evo Morales the right to Health and Education is sacred to every human being.

Bolivia was prized with the Award for Excellence in Public Service, regarding the health politics implemented, in the North American city of Atlanta in August.

    I really appreciate Bolivia Report – I was wondering – it would be interesting to develop a constructively critical stance on Cuba-Venezuela-Bolivia – social missions (such as the one described above) – the positive and less positive.
