Early Spanish Physicians and Hospitals in Cuba
Abstract:Very little is known about the early history of medicine in the Caribbean. Five hundred years ago medicine practitioners from Europe started to settle in the New World. Hospitals were built in very rudimentary houses to care for the sick. Diseases were received and transmitted by the new settlers. The author, a philatelist and a Columbus scholar, uses postage stamps to highlight the introduction of European medicine in Cuba.
