Lack of Medical decency, breaking of the human and international rights that are incompatible with their role as the venue of that Health venue and the wickedness and the powerlessness are some of the very deserved criticism against the U.S. Government on the social networks to refuse the Visa to the Cuban Public Health Ministry, José Ángel Portal Miranda and the rest of the delegation that would attend to the Health Pan American Health Organization in Washington city.
It is not more than an unusable way to gag a truth that floats like a sovereign flag before the astonished world sight.
It would cause great envy that our local Health Ministry commented that Cuba reached the lowest infantile mortality of its history with a 4.0 for each thousand child born alive and that is a number that is a number much better positioned that the one reported by the mighty US nation with a 7.0 for each child born alive.
It would be uncomfortable for them that the Cuban official announced that the life expectancy for Cubans reaches the 80 years, along with over 2100 centenarian people.
The US Health officials don´t like the WHO recognizes Cuba keeps eliminated the congenital Aids and syphilis transmission and the fact that Cuba has trained until July of the current year 376608 health professionals through the Medicine and Stomatology, Nursing Spheres and others such as the Health Technologies and they are added to the 35787 foreign students from 141 countries who were graduated in our universities.
As it is well said by my female neighbor through her peculiar way to call the things by their name. She, who is a Spanish citizen who has traveled throughout the world, said to her local clinic´s doctor:
“I go overseas, but I always return because it sucks abroad, without a medical insurance, and I paid $ 25.00 Dollars for an vaccine , so I come to see you here even for a minor pain in my food, for instance.”
The Cubans have one of the best regional parameters in terms of doctors per inhabitants, 9 doctors per 1000 inhabitants and that also gets upset our US neighbor that has tried to asphyxiate us without achieving to make us to give us.
The little Cuban nation should buy related technology and medicine at a double price multiplied by two and even three times its real price. However, Cuba is accused of people trafficking, enslave the local Health staff who travel to other nations and for benefitting economically from the Medical works overseas.
If Cuba obtains strong currencies and thankfulness for the services carried out by its Health collaborators, it also obtains them for keeping a free and accessible health system that can be improved by guaranteeing medical care for all, while they gain millions dollars, along with an US arms industry that causes death, pain, disruptions and traumas to other lands.
Our little territory with only 11 million inhabitants has had to invest in the training of its human resources due to the lack of industrialization and development due to the US Blockade. The Commander, Fidel Castro, had dreamt about it and put into practice due to he knew the human resource was certainly the best value in terms of the social and economic development of a country.
Nevertheless, it was so human his way of thinking that he tried to go beyond the instruction as such, taking into account that human potentiality implies not only related knowledge but also an ethical awareness, solidarity, true human feelings, sacrifice spirit, heroism and the capacity to do a lot with very little.
The arrogant Trump´s government feels annoyed due to the Cuban medicine´s high quality is praised and even the fact that the hospital with Cuban medical staff in Qatar is the reference in the Persian Gulf and the one preferred by the local citizens there do not mind travelling the 80 kilometers separating them from the Doha capital city because they do know that apart from examining them the Cuban doctors watch them into their eyes, talk and find the way to cure them and not taking away their money by making them dependent of medicines.
The current demon of the White House and his Brazilian subject, Bolsonaro, don´t really care the millions of Brazilian people who lost that Cuban doctor who placed a stethoscope on their chests for a first time in those far-off lands of religious people who talk about the Cuban doctors as the best after God.
The US feel worried because the best of Cuba keeps present throughout 67 nations of the world where they are transforming the health parameters with their presence as if a humanism and sensitivity brigade had arrived.
If the Cuban Health Ministry and this delegation attended to Washington, they would practically disrupted the millionaire campaign used for discrediting the Cuban public health care system because each of the slanders on the international medial cooperation would be drawn by the power of a true that hurts them: Cuba gains the international prestige and admiration for its own efforts and intellectual one and the capacity to diagnose properly with little resources.
As part of the most laudable pages of the international medical cooperation, Cuba magnifies its altruism. It was the Cuban medical staff who cured the Haitians´ wounds after the earthquakes.
In the frozen geography of Pakistan, they carried out their healing work as well as in Guatemala, Chile and Mozambique in its fight against the Ebola disease in Africa in spite of the risk of losing their lives. They got to those lands with their backpacks and campaign hospitals to show that all the world glory fits in a corn grain.
Once again, the United States tries to prevent the participation of Cuba in a scenery where it has the right to be, but there are starts which shine with their own light and there is an island that has resisted 60 years.
