US Blockade Prevents Public Health Supplies From Reaching Cuba


February 18, 2020

Havana, February 17 (RHC)– Cuba is currently forced to purchase medications in distant markets. It has to deal with the increase in import prices of medicines, medical instruments, disposable material, equipment, and spare parts.

Young engineer Solainy Fajardo Araujo, Director of Imports of the Import and Export Company of Medical Products of the Ministry of Public Health (MediCuba S.A.), knows the drill very well.

She told Juventud Rebelde that not only has the blockade against the island intensified during the government of President Donald Trump. Its extraterritorial nature has increased even more.

“It is not enough for the U.S. government to apply the blockade directly against Cuba; it also sanctions or severely fines entities from other nations that carry out commercial operations with our country, for which we receive more and more refusals, not only from trading companies and factories but also from banks, shipping companies, and even airlines during the negotiation process,” he said.

5. Should be looking for pirates and smugglers to do the job

Like buying beer when you're underage. A couple of extra steps, a third party buyer. If it's for the better good. Humanitarian piratism.

2. I find the embargo against Cuba inhumane and a crime against humanity.
