Radio Open Source
carried this interview with three medical students from the United States studying in Cuba.
the core of our long conversations is medicine, the Cuban way. This is
aggressive, free, hands-on healthcare that makes house calls, and
lingers for the feel of emotions and homelife. Doctors’ training -- like
doctors’ care -- is free: the payback required of the students here from
all over the hemisphere is only that they return to under served areas
of their home countries...Their thinking on social determinants of
health, on the primacy of public health and the vital role of
prevention strategies are unmatched in the world. With spending of less
than US$200 per person per year for health care, they have achieved
health outcomes no different than in the USA where expenditures now
exceed $7000 per person annually!”.
