A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Film Showing & Discussion

¡SALUD!


With a report and discussion from ANSWER organizers recently returned from Cuba.


A timely examination of human values and the health issues that affect us all, ¡Salud! looks at the case of Cuba, a country blockaded by the U.S. with what the BBC calls ‘one of the world’s best health systems.’ From the shores of Africa to the Americas, !Salud! travels 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 U.S. Their stories plus testimony from experts around the world bring home the competing agendas that mark the battle for global health—and show how socialist Cuba is the leading example of how health care can and should be a human right. 93min., 2006.
