CONACYT accompanies the call for a document in which the emblem of the Comercializadora de Servicios Médicos, SA of the Cuban regime, an entity that manages, among other things, the millionaire’s income from the “Medical Missions” in Havana abroad, appears.

According to official data published in September, the offer of scholarships to study in Cuba from the government of Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador was a failure, as 816 places were left vacant, many in much-needed disciplines, such as psychiatry and emergency medicine.

Many applicants had wondered at the beginning of 2021 that CONACYT did not guarantee them a place in their own country, but forced them to travel abroad, an option that was never consulted. Hence, the only alternative for those left without a job in a hospital in Mexico, was to go to Cuba.

The Government of Mexico pays Comercializadora de Servicios Médicos Cubanos between $9,000 and $14,500 annually for each tuition fee, plus a monthly sum of $1,100 to the scholarship recipient as “financial support,” deposited into a bank account that CONACYT has with a Mexican bank.

After losing many markets for its medical “missions”, especially in Latin America, the Cuban regime sought other ways to bring in resources by marketing its professional services. To do this, she insisted on engaging with the government of Mexico, whose alliance with Havana was becoming increasingly close.
