Ho Chi Minh City to pilot Cuba’s family doctor model in five districts

January 07, 2024

Dr. Thuong made the statement at a workshop conducted by the department on Friday to learn about Cuba’s family doctor model. In this model, family doctors visit patients at their homes, conducting examinations, evaluations, and classifications. The Cuban experts pointed out many challenges facing Ho Chi Minh City in developing a model of family doctors like Cuba’s. Prof. Villamarín emphasized the critical understanding that a family doctor is not someone expected to treat all diseases. Thuong expressed his willingness to provide consultation to the city’s administration in the process of selecting five rural districts for piloting the Cuban family doctor model.
