"It is called the continent of hope and this is a occasion, an opportunity, to develop a cooperation of high level technology and inspired by these principles that are a conception of health of the person.”

The two sides gathered in Rome to sign an agreement, where they committed to send medical goods and services to Latin America from the Roman hospital of Bambino Gesú.
The planned projects will provide assistance in cases of pediatric AIDS, serious illnesses or other special needs.

"We Italians have many things to say in the world of science and so I think this is an important step thanks to the study by the Italo-Latin American Institute and the sensitivity of the Holy See shown by the hospital.”
Also in attendance were many of the ambassadors from the 20 countries of Latin America that are part of the Italo-Latin American Institute. They noted that this new agreement was an important project for relations between the Vatican and Latin America.

"Here is something very concrete, the help from doctors which is above all for children. I think it's fundamental, not only for the Vatican which becomes closer to Latin America but also for the region of Latin America."

So far the two sides have a planned strategy that would provide assistance between 2012 and 2014. The plan will help children who need transplants, radiotherapy, and different forms of surgery. They also plan to improve preventive care such as child obesity and diets.
