The Uganda Medical Association has scoffed at the government's plans to import 200 medical Doctors from Cuba to be deployed in various government hospitals to back up the local doctors in case they lay down their tools.

Some media reports have indicated that the government has finalized plans to import 200 specialized Doctors from Cuba to address the challenges affecting the health sector in the country.

However, the President of Uganda Medical Union Dr. Obuku Anthony said that government should first put on hold this proposal and focus in improving health services for both doctors and the facilities because this will save the expenses which shall be incurred by importing Doctors.
