    People who travel to Cuba should know not to expect the same level of health care as they have in Canada. There are many horror stories of people who have traveled to Cuba. These encompass from hospital inadequate supplies and doctors, to hotels with electricity and water not working during certain periods of time.

    Dengue fever, which is transmitted by mosquitos is common in Cuba like in the area the couple was vacationing. It is very suspicious that the doctors could not determine the cause of Barbara’s illness and death.

    The Aedes aegypti mosquito has developed resistance to the insecticide used in the area the couple was staying. The dengue fever epidemic has become endemic in the island. During 1979 and outbreak of dengue fever caused more than 100 deaths. The Castroit tyrannical regime has always tried to hide the facts, instead of asking the international community for help to eradicate the epidemic.

    Human trafficking: the nadir of Castroist socialism
    Human trafficking: the nadir of Castroist socialism | Diario de Cuba

    Fabio Rafael Fiallo | Ginebra | 15 Ene 2016

    The socialist model formulated by Marx and completed by Lenin aimed to be superior to capitalism in terms of its capacity to develop "productive forces," i.e. the economy's technological and material foundation. It was precisely this alleged superiority of socialism, according to its supporters, that would spawn a new society of abundance for mankind in which class divisions would lose their raison d'etre.

    To realize socialism's promise the Soviet Union, and later China under Mao Tsetung, set about rapidly promoting industrialization, (Stakhanovism) and collectivizing agriculture.

    The result, as we see today, has been a complete debacle. Real socialism, whether in the Soviet Union, Mao's China, or anywhere else in the world, never managed to equal, and far less surpass, capitalism's results in terms of technological innovation and agricultural and industrial growth.

    Notwithstanding that the Castroit regime is one of the world’s worst perpetrators of human trafficking, the Obama administration pushed to upgrade Cuba from Tier 3 ranking to Tier 2. What the administration is really doing is empowering the Castroit regime, not the Cuban people.

    Cuba Archive: Cuba’s state-run human trafficking business
    Cuba Archive: Cuba’s state-run human trafficking business |

    April 1, 2016



    Cubaarchive.org

    Part I: Forced labor: the export services of temporary workers


    “Contrary to fighting human trafficking, the government is likely “one of the largest and most profitable traffickers in the world.” This statement was part of the recent testimony in Congress[1] by Cuba Archive’s Executive Director, Maria Werlau, on Cuba’s gigantic human trafficking business.

    A creative scheme of forced labor —temporary workers for export— accounts for Cuba’s largest, and growing, source of revenues. According to official reports, around 65,000 are serving the Cuban government in 91 countries; 75% (around 50,000) are in the health sector. The services of doctors, sports trainers, teachers, construction workers, entertainers, sailors, scientists, architects, engineers, and many other professionals and technicians are sold through large state entities, including two large health conglomerates (ServiMed-Servicios Médicos Cubanos, S.A. and the BioFarma Cuba group), and at least 84 smaller state entities (see 403 Forbidden). Their wages, for the most part, go directly to the Cuban government, whose annual export services net of tourism grew from US$1.5 billion in 2003 to US$7.8 billon in 2011 (the latest official data from Cuba). Recent reports put the annual figure at around US$8.2 billion (three times tourism revenues reported at around $2.7 billion a year).

    The violations to universally-recognized labor rights that this practice entails are numerous. Amply documented by Cuba Archive, they include chronic under-payment of wages, subsistence stipends, mandatory long hours, poor —often dangerous— living conditions, arbitrary restrictions of movement and others, retention of travel documents, and threats of retaliatory actions to the workers and their families if they defect overseas. This type of “modern slavery” violates many international agreements to which Cuba and most countries where these workers serve are parties, including conventions and protocols against human trafficking and of the International Labor Organization (ILO).

    Cuba’s export business of indentured workers and its unique brand of “health diplomacy” are possible only in a totalitarian state in which a pool of guaranteed captive low-paid workers can be exploited as “exportable commodities.” The average monthly salary is $20 and $60 for doctors.

    Because many Cuban workers serve “willingly,” —even eagerly— to improve their lot, it is important to note that the victims’ consent to forced labor practices does not exempt them from “human trafficking.” The legal definition is clear: “The consent of the victim to the intended exploitation is irrelevant once it is demonstrated that deception, coercion, force or other prohibited means have been used.” The Trafficking in Persons Protocol of 2000, a complement to the U.N. Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime, states that abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability for the purpose of exploitation constitutes human trafficking.

    See congressional hearing and written testimony HERE:
    It is not only the human trafficking business, since the 1960s the Castroit regime has been exporting blood to other countries, which has provided the regimen with millions of dollars. Beside blood, the regimen has been trafficking in the export of human body parts, making a handsome profit from them. Reports from the island on the plundering of bodies to obtain body parts are linked to the regime.

    The article “Cuba's Export Blood Business: An Unprecedented Case of State-Trafficking”, shows statistics of the millions of dollars made by the Castroit regime on the sale of human blood. According to the article, since the 1960s the blood of political prisoner was drain before their executions. Link: Cuba’s Export Blood Business: An Unprecedented Case of State-Trafficking |

    Barack Obama Extols Cuba's Slave-Labor Medical Care
    Forbes Welcome

    Paul Roderick Gregory
    APR 5, 2016


    President Barack Obama listens to the U.S. national anthem during a ceremony at the Jose Marti Monument in Havana, Cuba last month. (AP Photo/Dennis Rivera)

    Barack Obama, fresh from his historic opening to Cuba’s Castro brothers, was effusive in his praise of Cuba’s socialized health care system. Speaking to a town hall in Argentina, Obama gushed: “Medical care–the life expectancy of Cubans is equivalent to that of the United States, despite it being a very poor country, because they have access to health care. That’s a huge achievement. They should be congratulated.”

    Obama has been equally emphatic in his condemnation of “barbaric” and “evil” slavery, which is “wrong in every sense.” In Havana, Obama empathized with the Cuban people that slavery left its negative imprint on “Cuba, [which], like the United States, was built in part by slaves brought here from Africa.”

    In the internet dictionary, slave labor is defined as “labor that is coerced and inadequately rewarded.” Coercion is the use of force to get people to do something they would not do otherwise. Inadequate reward means earning much less than the value that has been created. Karl Marx used the term surplus value to denote workers being paid considerably less than their value. Under Marxism, surplus value is the original sin of capitalist exploitation. Seems like the Castro brothers live off of surplus value too.

    According to the definition, Cuba’s vaunted medical care system is built on slave labor. Cuban medical personnel are coerced by a dictatorial state and inadequately rewarded from the profit they generate (Marx’s surplus value), which accrues primarily to the Castro dictatorship. As pointed out by a Cuban doctor who served overseas before defecting: “We are the highest qualified slave-labor force in the world.”

    A good indicator that Cuba couldn't have a good healthcare system is their former enabler: the Soviet Union was clearly well behind the US, UK and other western nations in the area of health care. Many doctors from the Soviet Union who immigrated to the US had great difficulty meeting the minimal standards to be a practicing M.D. in the US. It is very likely that the "great" Cuban health care system modeled on the former Soviet Union's medical education system, would have the same problems.

    One of the most common problems of the Castroit regime health care system are the severe shortage of medicines, equipment, and other supplies. This problem is by no means limited to the health sector. The health care, as other key sectors of the economy, remain governed by centralized planning, which inevitably leads to chronic material shortages and inefficiency.

    Many treatments we take for granted aren't available at all, except to the Communist elite or foreigners with dollars. For them, Castro keeps hospitals equipped with the best medicines and technologies available.

    What is it that leads people to value theoretically "free" health care, even when it's lousy or nonexistent, over a free society that actually delivers health care? You might have to deal with creditors after you go to the emergency room in America, but no one is denied medical care here; even the poorest Americans are getting far better medical services than most Cubans.

    Cuban medical care has never recovered from Castro's takeover, when the country’s health care ranked among the world's best. He won the support of the Cuban people by promising to replace Batista’s dictatorship with free elections, and to end corruption. Once in power he made himself dictator and instituted Soviet-style Communism. Cubans not only failed to regain their democratic rights, but the economy plunged into centrally planned poverty. Cuban medical care has never recovered from Castro's takeover, when the country’s health care ranked among the world's best.

    Many physicians had serious complaints about the intrusion of politics into medical treatment and health care decision-making. There is no right to privacy in the physician-patient relationship, no right of informed consent, no right to refuse treatment, and no right to protest or sue for malpractice. Family doctors are also expected to report on the “political integration” of their patients, and to share this information with state authorities. These are the wonderful side benefits offered by the “free healthcare” of the Castroit regime.
