International Health Aid: What can we learn from Cuba?
February 9, 2010 starting at 6:30 PM until February 9, 2010 8:30 PM

Despite the outpouring of humanitarian aid in the aftermath of this tragedy, and furthermore the billions of dollars going to global health in the past decade, we see that international health aid has contributed very little to building capabilities in countries for responding to day-to-day needs, let alone crises like the recent earthquake.
