ALVAREZ SINTES, Roberto  y  BARCOS PINA, Indira. Formation and improvement of human resources in the Cuban health care system aimed at universal health coverage. Rev Cubana Salud Pública [online]. 2015, vol.41, suppl.1. ISSN 0864-3466.

The actions in the formation and improvement of the human resources stem from the regulation of the Ministry of Public Health that establishes work interrelations among the university, the health services and the community leading to greater teaching, assistance, research and management integration among the various actors involved in the teaching-assistance-research process. This article was aimed at encouraging exchanges of opinions among health professionals about the Cuban experience, the importance of integration and the formation of human resources by the health care system in order to assure universal health coverage without neglecting international solidarity and cooperation with other peoples. A historical analysis was made of the service provision and educational models in health sciences by using arguments based on health indicators and research outcomes. Common spaces for action were created on the basis of the dialogue, the agreement and the negotiation among all the actors, all of which was aimed at consolidating the process of social production of health. Some of the main strategies are primary health care, formation and upgrading of health professionals and technicians and other groups of workers on account of their learning requirements as well as the organization of a comprehensive control system through supervisions and inspections and third-party evaluations where the medical university plays a decisive role. For Cuba, solidarity and international cooperation in health services and medical education among the nations is a must.
