Film screening: What Puts Cuba on the Map for Global Health?

April 20, 2010 @ 9:45 pm - 11:45 pm

Salud film coverA timely examination of human values and the health issues that affect us all, ¡Salud! looks at the curious case of Cuba, a cash-strapped country with what the BBC calls ‘one of the world’s best health systems.’ From the shores of Africa to the Americas, ¡Salud! hits the road with some of the 28,000 Cuban health professionals serving in 68 countries, and explores the hearts and minds of international medical students in Cuba — now numbering 30,000, including nearly 100 from the USA. Their stories plus testimony from experts around the world bring home the competing agendas that mark the battle for global health — and the complex realities confronting the movement to make health care everyone’s birthright.

This event is being co-sponsored by C.U.U.S.P. (Coalition of Uninsured and Underinsured for Single Payer) and People Before Profit Community Healthcare Project. Come and learn more about these two organizations.
