How unjust and cruel US sanctions impact on Cuba’s health provision

By Aymee Díaz Negrín – Presentation to the annual Latin American Conference held in London on 27 January 2024 I think when we talk about the US blockade against Cuba, many times we think only about the illegal and unilateral sanctions against a country or a government with a political system completely different from the US, but the blockade is not only against the Cuban government. It has a devastating impact on the Cuban population, especially in the education and health sectors, despite the Cuban government’s huge efforts to provide high quality medical services. Just to give you an idea about the impact of the US policy: between March 2022 and February 2023 the blockade cost the Cuban health sector almost 240 million dollars.

The cause is simply the illegal, criminal and ongoing US embargo, which for over 65 years has attempted to suffocate socialism, independence and national aspirations in Cuba.  The economics of genocide is exactly what the USA applies to Cuba. There may not be overt military interven...
