Govenments 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.Filed under:
