  Don't miss this amazing documentary exploring the truly incredible
  health care system in Cuba. A timely examination of human values  and
  the health issues that affect us all, *Salud* looks at 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 Americas, *Salud* hits the road with some of the  28,000 Cuban
  health professionals serving in 68 countries, and  explores the
  hearts and minds of international medical students in  Cuba -- now
  numbering 30,000, including nearly 100 from the USA.   Their stories
  plus testimony from experts around the world bring  home the
  competing agendas that mark the battle for global health— and the
  complex realities confronting the movement to make  healthcare
  everyone’s birth right.
