    Default Free health care for Central and South America before USA?

    While many US citizens go without healthcare, President Bush is trying to out-Castro Castro, providing free healthcare as a means to gain influence. Sure it's just a token gesture, but it seems a little strange when 50 million US citizens do not have health insurance.





    Bush OKs Aid Programs for Latin America

    WASHINGTON -- President Bush, facing criticism he has ignored Latin America, said Monday the region's grinding poverty is a scandal that has caused some to question the value of democracy. He said the United States will spend tens of millions of dollars to improve education, housing and health care across the region.



    "The United States of America is committed to helping people rise out of poverty," the president said.



    Bush announced a series of steps to help the region:



    * A Navy medical ship, the Comfort, will make port calls in Belize, Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Suriname. Its staff will treat 85,000 patients and conduct up to 1,500 surgeries. Other military medical teams will provide medical care through 62 medical readiness training exercises in 14 countries.

    * A health care professional training center will be established in Panama to serve all of Central America, training students to be nurses, technicians and health care workers.
