I have an affordable solution to the doctor crisis at Mullum Hospital. Let’s import Cuban doctors. In Cuba today doctorsreceive a salary of $25 per month (brickies earn $50). Cuba exports thousands of doctors per year to all corners of the globe (except the USA). They exchange doctors for oil with Venezuela.
Why can’t the citizens of our town pull together, raise some funds, and hire them ourselves? Screw the red tape, regulations, and all other explanations/blocks for why those who make health policy don’t give a damn whether or not we’ve got a live human doctor on call in our community. Who’s keen to help?
