 Find out what puts Cuba on the map in the quest for global health …

!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 health care everyone's birth right.
