[ZESTCaste] How Venezuela & Cuba Are Changing the World’s Conception of Health Care


How Venezuela & Cuba Are Changing the World's Conception of Health Care
a talk by STEVE BROUWER author of Revolutionary Doctors 
joined by the Honorable Jorge Valero Briceño, 
Permanent Representative of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the United Nations
join us to learn what Venezuela is doing with support of Cuba to build new and human health care system.
Venezuela and Cuba clearly show that the basic human right of access to medical and health care in time of need is not dependent on the level of economic development. Venezuela and Cuba are not rich countries yet, and in spite of this, health care reaches the majority of their populations. They should be considered points of reference for poor countries that want to break with the underdevelopment of health. This book is a rigorous and balanced account of how they did it.—Vicente Navarro, MD, PhD; professor of health policy, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University; editor in chief, International Journal of Health Services
