ABREU UGARTE, Jorge Eduardo. Experience contributed by the Cuban military physicians during the independence wars in the 19th century. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2009, vol.38, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-3046.

Some experience about the organization of the military health system and the practice of military medicine in Cuba in the 19th century were presented. A literature review was made to collect data about this topic. The way in which the Cubans set the regulatory basis for the military health system during the independence wars was put forward. In the Ten-Year War 1868-1878, optimal organization of the military health system was not accomplished, but accumulated experience laid the foundations for the creation of the Military Health Corps in 1895 Independence War. The work of Cuban surgeons in this last war was scientifically documented by Medical Colonel Enrique Núñez de Villavicencio y Palomino, submitted to the Society of Clinical Studies in Havana and published in the "Archives of the Society of Clinical Studies of Havana" in 1889. It may be said that the meritorious performance of the Cuban physicians under the independence war conditions in the 19th century offer some interesting pieces of experience for the contemporary military medicine.
