Medicine in Cuba: Health in a country with social, political and economic peculiarities
Speaker: Elisavet Michaelidou, pediatrician, director of Esy΄, 3rd pediatric Clinic of Auth, Hippocratic Hospital of Thessaloniki
At the entrance of the Gulf of Mexico, in the Caribbean, “sailing” almost all alone-since for over 50 years it was in embargo-Cuba. Despite the shortcomings and difficulties, the country’s health system is of high quality and is admired by many developed countries and by WHO. The question is whether this happens despite the political and economic peculiarities of the country or because of them, and whether the system will survive with the changes that are occurring.
The Asia Minor catastrophe as a humanitarian crisis: Lessons from the past when history repeats itself
Speaker: Paraskevi Panagopoulou, assistant professor of pediatric Hematology-Oncology, 4th pediatric Clinic of Auth, Nos. Papageorgiou, Master of public health and international Medicine, Harvard, MA, USA
In the collective memory the term “Asia Minor catastrophe” refers to the historical events that led to this national tragedy and the consequent uprooting of 1.5 million people. But little is known about the way in which the state, but especially the international community, faced this early “humanitarian crisis” which is no different from modern. Even in our days when our country is facing problems due to increased migratory flows, this historical knowledge is of particular importance.
