Governments in the wealthy industrialized world?including our  
own?claim we can no longer afford necessary public services.  
Meanwhile, despite the severe economic crisis, El Salvador, one of the  
poorest countries in the Western hemisphere has brought regular public  
health and primary care services to many of the poorest areas of the  
country for the first time.

Members of CISPES medical brigade?the first of its kind to work in the  
new rural clinic system?will report on the changes ushered in by the  
election of the leftist FMLN to the presidency for the first time in  
2009.  They will also discuss the current political situation leading  
up to the 2014 presidential election and the role that US intervention  
is playing.
