Cuba is the first country in the world to stop the transmission of the AIDS virus from mothers to their babies, the World Health Organization said Monday.

Cuba's also stopped the transmission of syphilis from mothers to newborns -- two feats that show it's possible to control epidemics of both infections.

"Eliminating transmission of a virus is one of the greatest public health achievements possible," said WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan. "This is a major victory in our long fight against HIV and sexually transmitted infections, and an important step towards having an AIDS-free generation."

And when there aren't enough Americans with syphilis, the US government fixes that problem.

You guys might have a good point if the healthcare in Cuba worked as advertised (If you're poor and don't know anybody, sucks to be you unless it's an emergency) or America hadn't come up with tens of thousands of medical breakthroughs.

I believe the simple truth is that they became somewhat alarmed when they realized that I really meant to write what I believed. There is a peculiar parallel between some of our great Northern "liberals" and some of our outstanding Southern liberals.

Some of the people in both classes share the deep-seated convictions that only their convictions can possibly be the right ones. They both inevitably say the same thing: "We know the Negro and what is best for him."

that's complete bollocks. Cuba's health system has actually outpaced America in fighting measles, HIV and Malaria. Literally Cuban healthcare is better in almost every sense. Every indicator shows that Cuba is better-look at the Ebola outbreak and look who was on the front-line first... cuba.

You don't need to a look for a cite for this, since it's complete bull spit.

So, what you're telling me, is that if, Og forbid, you come down with the Ebola....you think your chances are better in Havana than Omaha?
