Experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) will visit Cuba soon to review if the country can be certified to have eliminated the transmission of HIV and syphilis from mother to child.  In order to receive the certification from the WHO, a country must have a transmission rate in less than 0.5 percent of live births in the case of syphilis and less than 2 percent in the case of HIV. Medical care for pregnant women and access to HIV tests must exceed 95 percent and antiretroviral treatment must be available for 95 percent of seropositive pregnant women.  “We believe Cuba meets the indicated requirements and we hope to receive certification,” said Dr. Rosaida Ochoa, director of the Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Unit.  Dr. Ochoa indicated that 24 experts from the WHO will visit hospitals, clinics, and laboratories in the provinces of Havana, Villa Clara, and Santiago de Cuba.  The Cuban doctor indicated that should Cuba be certified to have eliminated the transmission of HIV and syphilis from mother to child, it would be the first country in the world to do so.  Despite its status as a low-income country, Cuba's medical system is recognized as one of the best in the world.  As an example of Cuba's solidarity with the peoples of the world, Cuban doctors often travel to countries affected by disasters in order to provide medical relief. Cuban doctors recently went to countries in West Africa to help treat the Ebola epidemic, saving the lives of hundreds.

This means that: - prices of goods must not exceed wages - house rentals must be within the means of all groups - social welfare services must be open to all - educational and cultural amenities must be available to   everyone   (Kwame Nkrumah) A socialist economy is based on the principal value of serving the needs of the people. Consequently certain constraints are placed on how the economy functions. These constraints are as follows: First, there is no private ownership of the means of production, e.g. the factories, mills, mines, machinery and raw materials. Second, there are only 5 categories of economic structures allowed: 1) ownership by the people’s state; 2) people’s state chosen enterprises owned by foreign interests; 3) enterprises jointly owned by the people’s state & private firms; 4) cooperatives; 5) small scale privately owned enterprises. Third, the distribution of good and services-based on the principle from each according to their ability to each according to their work-is under the control of the workers. Fourth, all economic ventures are abased on centralized and scientific planning.             The overthrow of capitalism by the masses led by the armed working  class will bring into existence the people’s state.  The state is an  administrative organ developed by the new ruling class, the workers.  The people’s state uses administrative instruments- political, economic  and social to insure that all adhere to the goals, values & objectives  upon which the socialist society is based. There also is a workers’  armed force that crush any and all forms of resistance generated by all  who work against the establishment of the people’s state.  Life in a socialist society is based on true democracy where the  masses, through active participation in all phases of life, decide how to  move forward. The workers, collectively and democratically, decide  what and how to produce and distribute the profits their labor  generates based on the maxim “from each according to their ability to  each according to their work”.   Now the workers (the majority) become the oppressors over the former  capitalist ruling class (the minority) who constantly seek to regain  power. The workers armed ideologically and physically begin the  challenge of maintaining a people’s democracy while crushing all  attempts by the minority oppressed class to spread confusion and  return to power.  APRIL 2016 MARCH 2016 FEBRUARY 2016 JANUARY 2016                   In a socialist society, the workers collectively own and democratically control and manage the means of production (e.g. land, factories & natural resources). They are responsible for the distribution of the fruits of their labor to the society based on the principle, “From each according to his {her} ability to each according to his {her} work”.     Their objective is to manage and administer the production of goods and services generated by their labor, always seeking to expand the capacity of production for the sole purpose of increasing their quality of life.     There are 2 sectors in the “the working class”.  One sector comprises the urban industrial workers whose labor power, collective interaction and literacy skills enable them to produce the major industrial goods needed by the masses.  The other sector comprises the rural agricultural workers (peasants), the largest work force in mal-developed state.  Largely illiterate, their labor power is individual or family based and used to grow crops and livestock on small plots of land that they own or rent.    Under socialism, the workers are guided by a revolutionary party, one that requires principled behavior and study and one that constantly seeking to heighten the consciousness of the society for organized change to crush the exploiter, the capitalist and to build socialism.
