For those committed to health in rich and poor nations alike, "Salud"

examines the curious case of Cuba, a cash-strapped country with what the 
BBC calls "one of the world's best health systems." From the shores of 
Africa to the Mississippi Delta "Salud" hits the road with some 28,000 
Cuban health professionals serving in 68 countries, and explores the 
hears and minds of international medical students in Cuba- now numbering 
30,000. There stories bring home the complex realities confronting the 
movement to make health care a human right.  One of  the people featured 
in the film is Paul Farmer, MD, PhD, Harvard Medical School and Founding 
Director of  Partners In Health.
