For its part, the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy (FMP) has expressed in a note Monday, its concern about this strike and the dysfunction of the HUEH, which according to this note "greatly affects the practical training of students of the Faculty of Medicine and of the National School of Nursing of Port-au-Prince."
