Health in Cuba refers to the overall health of the population of Cuba. There was an overall improvement in Health in Cuba in terms of disease and infant mortality rates after the revolution. Like the rest of the Cuban economy, Cuban medical care suffered following the end of Soviet subsidies in 1991; the stepping up of the US embargo against Cuba at this time also had an effect. Cuba has one of the highest life expectancy rates in the region, with the average citizen living to 78.05 years old (in comparison to the United States 78.62 years). In the 1950s, the island had some of the most positive health indices in the Americas, not far behind the United States and Canada. Cuba was one of the leaders in life expectancy, and the number of doctors per thousand of the population ranked above Britain, France and the Netherlands. In Latin America it ranked in third place after Uruguay and Argentina. There remained marked inequalities however. Most of Cubas doctors were based in the relatively ...
Last April, I visited my Cuban-Chinese family in Santiago de Cuba with my youngest brother Roberto Santiago Hung Fong who wanted to see our family relatives living in this historic city founded in 1614, five hundred years ago by Don Diego Velázquez de Cuellar. On the 500th Anniversary of the founding of Santiago de Cuba,…
The United States seeks a stable, prosperous, and free country for the Cuban people. The United States pursues limited engagement with Cuba that advances our national interests and empowers the Cuban people while restricting economic practices that disproportionately benefit the Cuban government or its military, intelligence, or security agencies at the expense of the Cuban people. The U.S. government seeks to promote human rights, religious freedom, and democracy, encourages the development of telecommunications and the internet in Cuba, supports the growth of Cubas nascent private sector and civil society, and engages in areas that advance the interests of the United States and the Cuban people. The United States is committed to supporting safe, orderly, and legal migration from Cuba through the effective implementation of the U.S.-Cuba Migration Accords. Due to injuries sustained by our diplomatic community in Havana, visa processing for most Cuban applicants is presently taking place in ...
The Congress makes the following findings:. (1) President Clinton stated in April 1993 that the United States opposed the construction of the Juragua nuclear power plant because of the concerns of the United States about Cubas ability to ensure the safe operation of the facility and because of Cubas refusal to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty or ratify the Treaty of Tlatelolco.. (2) Cuba has not signed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons or ratified the Treaty of Tlatelolco, the latter of which establishes Latin America and the Caribbean as a nuclear weapons-free zone.. (3) The State Department, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and the Department of Energy have expressed concerns about the construction and operation of Cubas nuclear reactors.. (4) In a September 1992 report to the Congress, the General Accounting Office outlined concerns among nuclear energy experts about deficiencies in the nuclear plant project in Juragua, near Cienfuegos, Cuba, ...

Katherine Hirschfeld, an anthropology professor at the University of Oklahoma, did her Ph.D. thesis on the Cuban health system, spending nine months conducting ethnographic work in Cuba in the late 1990s. According to Hirschfeld, "public criticism of the government is a crime in Cuba", which means that "formally eliciting critical narratives about health care would be viewed as a criminal act both for me as a researcher, and for people who spoke openly with me".[79] Nevertheless, she was able to hear from many Cubans, including health professionals, "serious complaints about the intrusion of politics into medical treatment and health care decision-making".[79] She points out that "there is no right to privacy in the physician-patient relationship in Cuba, no patients right of informed consent, no right to refuse treatment, and no right to protest or sue for malpractice".[79] In her view medical care in Cuba can be dehumanizing. Hirschfeld explains also that the Cuban Ministry of Health (MINSAP) ...
Cuba, with a population of a little over 11 million people, imports about 80% of its domestic food requirements. A number of measures are being taken to increase food production, chief among which is the allocation of fallow land to private individuals and groups, as well as the reduction of the amount of land devoted to sugar cane cultivation, but the countrys vulnerability to hurricanes and droughts, coupled with the increase in global food prices and the financial crisis, makes the path to national food security difficult.. The eastern region of Cuba - encompassing the provinces of Guantánamo, Granma, Santiago de Cuba, Las Tunas, Holguín, and Camagüey - is the most vulnerable to food insecurity.. Cubas education and health system are admirable and have put the country well on the path to achievement of four of the eight MDGs. The main public health problem is anaemia, with a prevalence in the east of 56,7% among children under the age of 24 months and 20,1% amongst those between the ages ...

At a time when Cuban American relations were already bad, allowing Black liberation activist Assata Shakur to find refuge on the island only made matters worse. But Fidel Castro did it none the less.. "He is the embodiment of the Cuban Revolution," Zayid Muhammad, former New Jersey Black Panther leader, told The Final Call. "Cuba has been a protector and defender of Assata Shakur as a matter of principle. Cuba does not give up their political prisoners. Assata is fine there. Castro retired 20 years ago. She couldnt be in a better place. Cuba is already taking defensive measures since the election. They are on full military alert.". When President Obama thawed relations with Cuba the Shakur case was not discussed. In 2013, the FBI placed her on its Most Wanted Fugitive List with a $1 million bounty. On the same day, the New Jersey State Police matched that with another $1 million, meaning a $2 million bounty is offered for information leading to her capture. She is the first and only woman on ...
Havana, Oct 24 (RHC) The application of natural products to patients in Cuba was among topics debated on Wednesday at the 20th Latin American Congress on Pharmacology and Therapeutics (Latinfarma 2013), under way in Havana with the participation of 800 delegates from about 40 nations.
Indeed, the head of the Senate Finance Committee has recently done just that.. On August 1st, Sen. Ron Wyden, (D-OR) introduced the U.S.-Cuba Trade Act of 2017 to repeal the blockade. This is a step in the right direction for the people of Cuba, even though it was made not out of humanitarian concern, but to advance U.S. commercial interests in Cuba.. "It is well past time for the United States to abandon the failed policy of trying to isolate Cuba," Wyden said. "Decades of experience have proven the embargo will never improve the lives of the Cuban people. Instead, this policy only serves to shut U.S. exporters out of a natural market for American agricultural and manufactured goods.". Six senators - all Democrats - stood with Wyden as co-sponsors of the legislation: Senators Patrick Leahy (VT), Dianne Feinstein, (CA), Richard Durbin (IL), Tom Udall, (NM), Patty Murray (WA), and Jeff Merkley (OR).. But regardless of intentions to benefit American business, Wydens sponsoring legislation is a ...
(AP Photo/Jose Goitia) Cuban employees fix flags in the streets as they prepare the May Day demonstration, Wednesday April 30, 2003 in Havana, Cuba. The Cuban government wants this demonstration to be the biggest of the revolutionary period.
The 20th century began with Cuba, and therefore Havana, under occupation by the United States.[23] The US occupation officially ended when Tomás Estrada Palma, first president of Cuba, took office on 20 May 1902.. During the Republican Period, from 1902 to 1959, the city saw a new era of development. Cuba recovered from the devastation of war to become a well-off country, with the third largest middle class in the hemisphere. Apartment buildings to accommodate the new middle class, as well as mansions for the Cuban tycoons, were built at a fast pace.. Numerous luxury hotels, casinos and nightclubs were constructed during the 1930s to serve Havanas burgeoning tourist industry. In the 1930s, organized crime characters were not unaware of Havanas nightclub and casino life, and they made their inroads in the city. Santo Trafficante, Jr. took the roulette wheel at the Sans Souci Casino, Meyer Lansky directed the Hotel Habana Riviera, with Lucky Luciano at the Hotel Nacional Casino. At the time, ...

Prior to the trip I had conversations with Secretary of State Clinton, National Security Advisor Donilon, and Judy Gross.. There is a fundamental incompatibility between policies of Cuba and the U.S., based on more than half a century of efforts by leaders in Washington to disrupt and bring about changes in the communist regime of Fidel and Raul Castro.. An economic embargo continues against Cuba, codified into law by the Helms-Burton Act passed during the Clinton administration. Activities or funds expended under its auspices, as expressed officially in the Act, and also assumed by Cubans, are limited to democracy promotion programs designed to weaken and overthrow the Castro regime. Such U.S. activities are authorized by U.S. law and considered a crime against the state by Cuban law.. Except for certain causes (academic, journalistic, or religious) and Cuban-American families, American citizens are deprived of the right to visit Cuba.. The Cubans know that, as president, I lifted all travel ...

We cant close our eyes to the differences that exist, but our organization has the privilege of being in one of the fields where the benefits of cooperation exceed the hostility," says Gail Reed, a Chicago journalist who, from her office in the Havana neighborhood of Santos Suárez, writes for MEDICC Review, a quarterly that translates into English the articles and research papers by doctors from Cuba and other countries. "The association used to help us organize the trips to Cuba of students of medicine. I accompanied them from time to time," recalls Javier Nieto, a professor at the University of Wisconsin/Madison and a member of MEDICC. "This exchange was interrupted in 2003 or 2004 by the restrictions imposed by the Bush administration." Until then, some 1,500 Americans were able to know first-hand the system of medical care on the island. "The possibilities for collaboration are unlimited, beginning with academic exchanges. Cuba can contribute much to the public health organizations in the ...
The musical interaction between Cuba and the US is ancient. Already in the 18th century, during the Spanish rule of Louisiana (1763-1803), the Havanese orchestras and bands offered concerts in New Orleans and in the 19th century the Cuan contradanza was very popular in the US. At the beginning of the 20th century, the first jazz bands were created in Cuba, in the style of the American groups. The "Sagua" Jaz Band was founded in Sagua la Grande in 1914 by Pedro Stacholy (conductor and pianist). The group played during 14 years at the "Teatro Principal de Sagua.[184]. The strong influenece of the American music on the Cuban younger generations gave way to the beginning of the soloists and groups of Rock and roll in Cuba during the 1950s. Many Cuban artists sang versions of American songs translated to Spanish, as it was also happening in Mexico.[237]. The launching of the group Los LLopis represented the entrance in a new stage for the Cuban music, that of the generation and amplification of the ...

July 26 is Cubas National Day of Rebellion. Speaking in Bayamo, President Miguel Díaz-Canel honored rebels led by Fidel Castro who on that day in 1953 attacked military installations of the Batista dictatorship. He outlined current economic challenges and political tasks lying ahead.. Economic problems weigh heavily in Cuba. The Cuban people continue to face shortages and their incomes remain low, despite recent pay raises. The governments foreign debt is growing and access to credit is limited. Cuba is overly dependent on food imports despite land tenure reforms. The U.S. economic blockade targets foreign investors through implementation for the first time of Title III of the 1996 Helms-Burton Law. As explained by Díaz-Canel, "The Revolution now needs us to unleash a great battle for our defense and economy so we can break the enemys plan to destroy and asphyxiate us.. But the Revolution requires also that "we strengthen spirituality in our people, plus civility, decency, solidarity, ...
The Cuban-born population of the United States, enumerated at 608,000 in the 1980 census, has been little studied with regard to cancer mortality. Being older and rarely migrating back to Cuba, Cuban Americans present a good subject for comparative cancer mortality. Age-adjusted death rates for selected causes of cancer are compared in this paper for Cubans in Cuba, the Cuban-born in the United States, and all whites in the United States. Two forms of cancer have been of particular concern in Cuba, cancer of the lung and cancer of the prostate, because of their relatively high death rates. The age-adjusted death rates for both of these cancers are lower among the Cuban-born in the United States than they are among Cubans in Cuba and whites in the United States. Death rates for cancer of the cervix and cancer of the rectum among the Cuban-born in this country are also low relative to Cubans in Cuba and whites in the United States. Stomach cancer mortality among Cuban-born men in the United States ...
Visiting Cuban Vice president has said his country is keen on reactivating its historic ties with Uganda and help boost Ugandas healthcare and university education.. Mr Salvador Valdes Mesa, who paid a visit to Speaker Rebecca Kadaga at Parliament on Wednesday, said: "Cuba will continue to support Uganda through human resource training at several Uganda universities. Healthcare is one of the key areas that will form part of our cooperation.". The Vice President said there was opportunity for Uganda to tap into unique methods the Cuban government has used to eradicate illiteracy.. "Other than the scientific innovations that have seen Cuba produce unique medicines to cure diabetes hepatitis B and meningitis, Cuba has also used cost-effective and very efficient methods to educate its population," he added.. ...
HAVANA Hurricane Ike roared south of Cuba s densely populated capital of fragile aging buildings after tearing across the island nation, ravaging homes, killing at least four people and forcing 1.2 million to evacuate.. Residents in Texas and northern Mexico braced for Ike s next wallop.. Winds howled and heavy rains fell across Havana, where streets were empty of cars and people Tuesday morning.. Cuba, which has carried out well-executed evacuations over the years, ordered hundreds of thousands of people more than a tenth of its 11 million people to seek safety with friends and relatives or at government shelters, state television reported.. I feel safe here, above all for my granddaughters who are the most important thing in my life, said Marta Molas, who evacuated to a government shelter in Havana with seven relatives. They take good care of us, we have television and food. ... When the electricity goes out we have a radio. The government closed schools and government offices in the capital ...

According to the public relations and information center of the Vice-Presidency for science and technology affairs, Sorena Sattari, the vice president for science and technology affairs, pointed out the progress made in Iran in the science and technology field, especially nanotechnology, stating: soon, an equipped Iranian laboratory will be established in Cuba, which is hoped to start a new chapter of joint scientific and technological cooperation between the two countries.. He added: Iran has had great relations with Cuba. Last year, I traveled to this country for the first time was very impressed by its culture. Sattari also expressed: we hope that the presence of the Cuban delegation in Iran leads to an appropriate view of technological abilities of Iran and effective collaborations in the nano and bio technologies and stem cells. Pointing out the preparedness of Iran to increase scientific and technological cooperation with Cuba, Sattari affirmed: we hope that technological exchanges and ...
In October of 2017, the United States expelled fifteen Cuban diplomats in retaliation for the alleged attacks. And within the American embassy, staff was reduced to a skeleton crew in the face of the ongoing illnesses.. And while newspapers wholeheartedly trumpeted the sonic weapon attacks, scientists and those with knowledge of such weapons were urging caution, because theres almost certainly no such thing as what was being claimed.. The first thing many people say when they hear this is that sonic weapons are actually very real. This is true, but using this fact to justify the reports from Cuba would be like pointing out that turtles are real to justify the existence of dragons. Real sonic weapons have nothing in common with the Cuba reports, and are not an acceptable match for them. So lets look at real sonic weapons to better understand just how far out there the Cuba reports are.. The most common type of sonic weapon is called an LRAD, short for long range acoustic device. An LRAD looks ...

Today marks the 140th anniversary of the Grito de Yara, the start of Cubas first War of Independence (1868-1878). This epic struggle claimed more lives than 30 American Revolutions but did not culminate in our independence because, then as now, our countrymen stood alone against the indifference and even hostility of the world. There was no France to provide reinforcements nor His Christian Majestys Treasury to finance our revolution. Spain, which by then had already been ousted from all its other possessions in the New World except Cuba and Puerto Rico, clung tenaciously to the "Pearl of the Antilles," the revenues from which sustained it more than all its own exertions did. Spain was ready to sink all the gold of the Indies, acquired over 400 years, into the endeavor of retaining the last and most precious remnant of its colonial empire. The European powers, and principally Britain, sided with Spain, though they had condemned for 50 years the slave trade which Spain abetted and which the ...

The native Amerindian population of Cuba began to decline after the European discovery of the island by Christopher COLUMBUS in 1492 and following its development as a Spanish colony during the next several centuries. Large numbers of African slaves were imported to work the coffee and sugar plantations, and Havana became the launching point for the annual treasure fleets bound for Spain from Mexico and Peru. Spanish rule eventually provoked an independence movement and occasional rebellions were harshly suppressed. US intervention during the Spanish-American War in 1898 assisted the Cubans in overthrowing Spanish rule. The Treaty of Paris established Cuban independence from Spain in 1898 and, following three-and-a-half years of subsequent US military rule, Cuba became an independent republic in 1902 after which the island experienced a string of governments mostly dominated by the military and corrupt politicians. Fidel CASTRO led a rebel army to victory in 1959; his authoritarian rule held the ...

Remarks at at a conference of the Georgetown University Caribbean Project: "Challenges and Opportunities Facing the Cuban Economy in the Next Decade. There is a lot of talk about "transition" in Cuba as if it is a process that will begin some day in the future.. I would argue that a transition is under way now - not a political transition, but a transition from one kind of economy to another.. It is under way for the farmers across Cuba who are selling their surplus produce on the open market, and its under way for the vendors in farmers markets who deliver that produce to consumers. Its under way for workers in a nickel plant near Cubas eastern tip who work for a Canadian corporation, earn high dollar wages, and are being trained to work with modern technology. Its under way for the three percent of the Cuban labor force - about 150,000 Cubans - who work legally in their own small enterprises.. These Cubans inhabit what I call Cubas new economy, and they have several things in ...
After Cuba and the United States ended all diplomatic relations in 1961, the Soviet Union became Cubas primary supplier of medical equipment and medicines. The Soviet Union provided 94 percent of Cubas imports of medical equipment in 1961-1988. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Cubas imports of medical equipment and medicines dropped dramatically. During the worst part of the economic crisis of the 1990s, Cuba had a severe lack of medicines. The supply of raw materials required to produce 85 percent of all drugs consumed in Cuba was halted with the collapse of the Soviet Union, resulting in the lack of 300 medicines (Mesa-Lago, 2000, 324). MINSAP began directing physicians to conserve and control the existing medicines for the neediest. The government also resorted to the use of alternative medicines. Because Cubans do not have a strong traditional reliance of herbal medicine, it was not an easy task to persuade the population to use alternative medications (Barrett 1993, 3).. The oil ...
The National Museum of Fine Arts (Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes) is a Fine Arts museum that exhibits Cuban and International art collections. The museum houses one of the largest collections of paintings and sculpture from Latin America and is the largest in the Caribbean region.[61] Under the Cuban Ministry of Culture, it occupies two locations in the vicinity of Havanas Paseo del Prado, these are the Palace of Fine Arts, devoted to Cuban art and the Palace of the Asturian Center, dedicated to universal art.[62] Its artistic heritage is made up of over 45,000 pieces.[63]. The Museum of the Revolution (Museo de la Revolución), designed in Havana by Cuban architect Carlos Maruri, and the Belgian Paul Belau, who came up with an eclectic design, harmoniously combines Spanish, French and German architectural elements. The museum was the Presidential Palace in the capital; today, its displays and documents outline Cubas history from the beginning of the neo-colonial period. The building was the ...
Hunting by members of the privileged mayimbe class and the upper echelon of Cubas military society is a large and lucrative sport, which is sometimes extended to VIP tourists with hard cash (photo, left) Thousands of birds are shot each year by the Cuban nomenklatura and their guests. Prime targets are the doves (Zenaida sp.) and ducks that stop during their migration in the marshes of El Jíbaro near Sancti Spiritus, the same area my father and I traversed during our 1966 escape from Cuba. (6). But, because hunting by the privileged parties involved is unregulated and exploited to the hilt without attention to the environment and natural habitats, many native Cuban species of birds are nearing extinction, including the lechuza, the Cuban owl (Tyto alba); the various hawks and birds of prey, buhos, gavilanes (Buteo platypterus) and cernícolos (Falco sparverius), and even the Cuban parrots, the cotorras (Amazona leucocephala)..
