* Salud! A film on Cuban Healthcare *
Tuesday, Aug. 14, 7 pm,
Enquentro 5, 33 Harrison Ave. 5th floor (near Beach St in Chinatown)

*/ First See /* Michael Moore’s *SiCKO
*The main theme of the movie is that American society needs to focus on 
the "we" and not the "me" in healthcare. This broad message is an 
overlay for the specific criticisms of the healthcare industry - the 
movie asks where the morality of the American public lies and contrasts 
America's approach to privitized health care unfavorably with single 
payer approaches of other nations. (see below for info on showings),

* SALUD! (aka WeLLO)
* *A film on Cuban Healthcare*
*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. Their stories bring home the complex realities 
confronting the movement to make health care a human right. Featuring 
Dr. Paul Farmer of Partners in Health, the subject of Tracey Kidder's 
Mountains Beyond Mountains. http://www.saludthefilm.net/ <== Interesting 
material on this site on Cuban healthcare and
a critique of US healthcare.
