GONZALEZ QUIJANO, Humberto. Life and work of the General of Brigade Silverio Sánchez Figueras. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2016, vol.38, n.2, pp.307-312. ISSN 1684-1824.

Knowing Cuban history is one of the main premises in the training of a health professional. The personalities of the Cuban independence war generated a legacy of values that is worth to maintain: patriotism, humanism and solidarity. In many cases we learn from the behaviour of individuals that did not have a medical formation, but who dedicated part of their lives to facilitate the sanitary actions during the war, because of their roles and functions. That is the case of the general of brigade Silverio Sanchez Figueras, Antonio Maceo’s trusted man. In this work we make a review of his military and political life, and refer how, through a fruitful relationship with MD Felix Figueredo, member of the Military Health Corpus in the “Protest of Baragua”, he kept a constant sanitary control and monitored the diseases to which Cuban mambises were exposed.

Palabras clave : Siverio Sánchez Figueras; General of Brigade; Liberator Army.
