US sanctions are depriving 11 million Cubans of vital medicines and surgical supplies

Cuba’s commitment to health as a human right has helped the country achieve world-renowned health services for its people despite 62 years of an illegal US blockade.

Today, these achievements are under threat. Cuba’s dedicated health professionals struggle with limited resources. From surgical supplies to spare parts, paracetamol to sutures: items readily available here, are increasingly hard to come by.

Today’s shortages are unprecedented. After leading the region for many years, Cuba’s impressive health indicators are beginning to suffer.

In response, the Cuba Solidarity Campaign has launched a medical appeal to send containers of life-saving medicines, raw materials, surgical supplies and medical equipment to Cuba.

Help break the blockade on health. Come to this fringe meeting to find out how you can support the Cuba Vive appeal to provide urgent medical aid for Cuba.
