Cuba, the Medical Odyssey of Jean-Jacques Seymour

Edition Owen publishing, October 2017 - 182 Pages
A Through the pages of this book, Jean-Jacques Seymour reveals the fruit of his research. Fascinated by the history of Cuba, he lingers on a little-treated subject: Cuban medicine. How this island, cut off from everything, under embargo for decades, has managed to create a medicalized society with great research capacities with its 11 scientific research centers?
The island of Cuba is a medical exception. Cuba has made medicine one of its priorities since the late 1950s. With one doctor for every 148 inhabitants, according to the WHO, Cuba is the world's best-equipped nation in this sector.
The medical odyssey that results from a long quest is first of all a book from the heart, a book that palpitates, in which I felt, on each page, the beating of this island, the rhythm of progress, the tempo of perseverance ".

"This book is not a dogma, it was born from a series of encounters. » And all these encounters resulted in numerous interviews, scrupulously reproduced, with the intention of making the other's point of view heard, without any judgment. Regardless of one's views on the Cuban revolution, "Cuba, the Medical Odyssey." highlights its fabulous advances in men's health and wellness.
Jean-Jacques Seymour is a graduate of the Institute of Political Studies of Toulouse. He is an editorial journalist, a radio and television man specialising in Caribbean issues, whose decolonisation processes he has followed over the last twenty years. He is the author of several reference books on this region.
