Castro dictatorship sells medical specialists to Mexico despite doctor shortage in Cuba

Cuba has a dire shortage of doctors and specialists to serve the people, but that hasn’t stopped the communist Castro dictatorship from its modern-day slave trade of selling Cuban doctors for hard currency.

Via Diario de Cuba (my translation):

Regime exporting medical specialists to Mexico who are in short supply in Cuba’s hospital

The Mexican government announced that another 124 Cuban doctors are scheduled to arrive on January 27 to provide service in several regions. This brings the total number of health professionals exported by Havana to its political ally Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to 616.

According to a report by Zoe Robledo, the director of the Mexican Institute for Social Security, during the president’s daily press conference on Tuesday, the imported doctors will be sent to 12 states, among them Guerrero, Colima, and Michoacan.

According to a report by TV Azteca, the doctors are specialists in geriatrics, psychiatry, allergy, immunology, internal medicine, cardiology, dermatology, and gastroenterology. Many hospitals and areas in Cuba have a deficit of these and other specialists, although the government prefers to export them.

This is the first stage, she said, since the government wants to expand contracting numerous other specialties, from trauma specialists to even neurologists, as well as general practitioners, to fulfil Lopez Obrador’s promise to nationalize healthcare throughout the country.

  1. Nice try, but no cigar. The end (generating revenue necessary to keep the “revolution” in power) justifies the means–any means. And if you don’t think the usual suspects see it that way, just ask a certain AMLO.

  2. Just imagine how it would feel to have 11 million slaves to do with as you please. What marvelously wicked power. No wonder the Cuba leadership is so corrupt. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. I imagine the only way to keep so many slaves under your control is to have them constantly poor, hungry and fearful of your lash. They would be so thankful for any little thing you give them, even just a fake award. And if you feed and house them, they will love you. They would worship you and put up big pictures of you everywhere because by your word they live or die. You would be like a god to them. If they worshipped you, then you would reward them. But if they refused to worship you, then they would be made to suffer and be put to death.

    Of course, the problem is you are not really a god and thus have no real power to produce or make anything good. As a matter of fact, you are quite weak, incompetent and unable to even support yourself. You only have power to take (by force) from those you do not obey you and give it to those that do obey. The problem is that you slowly destroy those who don’t obey and thus there is less and less to give to those who do obey. Slowly your kingdom fails and you go to the eternal pit of fire.
