Cuban doctors will be offered furnished homes, air fares for holidays, paid utilities and transport on top of their salaries in a deal agreed with governors that looks set to upset local medics.

The 100 Cuban doctors, who will arrive in the country on May 28, will work for two years with the Health ministry paying their salaries.

Governors will be expected to provide the specialists with accommodation, furniture, kitchen appliances, kitchen utensils and pay for their utilities like electricity, water and cooking gas.

Counties will also cater for their local transport expenses while government will pay their air fare to and from Cuba when serving their 30 day annual leave.

Anne Waiguru, the deputy chair the Council of Governors (CoG), said yesterday the 53 family physicians and 47 specialists would be “provided with an enabling environment to do their work”.
