GONZALEZ, J.  y  BASANTA, A.M.. The Institute of Legal Medicine of the Havana (Cuba). Cuad. med. forense [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.1-2, pp.43-52. ISSN 1988-611X.

The evolution undergone by the Havana Institute for Legal Medicine is described, since its foundation 50 years ago. The beginning of the Institute was characterized by a simple change of name. Later, thanks to the introduction of a program for the formation and training of human resources, the Institute's personnel gained a high level of education and performance which allowed the technicians to accomplish their tasks according to the demands of their expert practice. This evolution was not followed by the acquisition of modern technologies. The economic obstacles always present in the Institute's work have hampered it. To alleviate this situation, the personnel of the Institute have profited from the technologies available in other institutions. This strategy has kept them updated, allowing them to obtain advanced results, comparable with the highest international standards.
