ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to medical missionaries from Cuba. The Cuban missions have multiple aims. At some level, certainly in the minds of the medics themselves, this is humanitarianism. It is also a chance to practice in their field with resources absent at home. But for the regime of Cuban President Fidel Castro, there are geopolitical and financial objectives. Doctors exiled from Cuba say that in exchange for their mission work they earned a third or less of what Havana got for their services from foreign governments. INSET: Castro's Banker?.
