Doctor's Day

On December 3, National Doctor's Day and Pan American Doctor's Day, established by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), are celebrated.

News of the Day

The date was elected in honor of Dr. Carlos Finlay , born in Cuba on December 3, 1833. He spent years looking for the cause of yellow fever, and in 1881 he claimed that the disease was transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which currently transmits the viruses that produce Zika, Dengue and Chikunguya.
