Inside Cuba's Prisons: Health Care and Vocational Training 3/31/2004 People's Voice: "This theme, that there are no statistical differences between health indices inside or outside of Cuba's prisons, was also strongly underscored during the Congress on Prison Medicine, which included parallel meetings on nursing, dentistry and natural and traditional medicine in Cuban prisons. In his presentation on the history of the Cuban penal system, Lt.-Col. Dr. Terencio Batista Sanchez, head of Interior Ministry Health Services in the province of Holguin, referred to recent Internet data showing that the incidence of HIV- AIDS is ten times higher in US prisons than in the general US population, hepatitis is nine times higher and TB is as much as fourteen times higher. In comparison, in Cuba - which just last month was ranked the first among six countries which received an award from the World Health Organization in recognition of its TB control program - the same indices for TB, HIV-AIDS and other diseases, as well as the same programs of vigilance, testing and epidemiology, exist among prisoners as among the population as a whole."
