No Longer the World’s Best-Kept Secret

(p.270) Conclusion
Healthcare Without Borders

John M. Kirk

University Press of Florida

This section ties up loose ends, particularly seeking to explain why Cuba has become involved in so many forms of medical internationalism. A variety of motives are examined. The case is made that Cuba’s medical internationalism program has had an enormous outreach, saving the lives of millions of people in scores of countries, and providing basic healthcare to tens of millions more. Data on the current role are provided, and it is argued that it should no longer be the world’s best-kept secret.
