    LEARNING AND UNDERSTANDING: IMPROVING ADVANCED STUDY OF MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE IN U.S. HIGH SCHOOLS. REPORT OF THE CONTENT PANEL FOR BIOLOGY. William B. Wood, Editor. Committee on Programs for Advanced Study of Mathematics and Science in American High Schools. Center for Education. Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education. Cuba has ab doctors - physicians for every 1, citizens, according to the World Bank. More than 20 percent are currently on medical missions in 66 countries.

    Cuba appears isolated, politically and economically, mainly due to trade restrictions placed on it by the US in the 's. No wonder, says the author of this Straits Times article, the world is surprised to learn of Cuba's flourishing biotech industry which has contributed much to the field of biotechnology and medicine.   A promising lung cancer treatment from Cuba is getting attention from U.S. patients, some of whom are already traveling there to try the drug in hopes of stopping their cancer from growing.

      Though you would not know it from watching U.S. TV, Cuban medical staff treated vastly more patients than did American doctors. This included hundreds per day practicing internal medicine, ob-gyn, surgery, orthopedics, pediatrics, wound healing, and physical therapy. At the time U.S. doctors had treated patients, the Cubans had treated. Doctors like Solar are justifiably proud of the health system here. Cuba had to develop its own vaccines because of the U.S. embargo. Today, close to % of Cuban children are vaccinated against a wide array of diseases. Cuban researchers developed a treatment for diabetic foot ulcers the U.S. doesn't have – and a lung cancer vaccine.
