GALVEZ CABRERA, Elisa. Legal bases of medical acting in the use of street drugs in Cuba. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2005, vol.21, n.5-6. ISSN 0864-2125.

Cuba, as a proof of its concern in keeping away from drugs, signs the international agreements, takes an active part in the sessions convoked on this regard and, in accordance with the obligations assumed as a signatory country, adopts the administrative and legal measures in relation to the principles and resolutions established by these conventions that constitute the legal bases of medical acting in the case of use of street drugs in the country. The content of these legal bases supports the correct acting of the physician and his team when these substances are used, and any deviation or nonfulfilment will be the object of the application of the administrative, civilian or legal measures established in the Cuban legislation. Motivated by the interest of making known some of the juridical decrees in that respect, we made this bibliographic review in order to contribute to the permanent educative work directed to the prevention and control of the inadequate use of drugs.

Keywords : Legislastion; drugs.
