Cuba: Unpublished system of community medical care All the policlinics of Cuba assistance .centers that mediate between the clinics of the Doctor of the Family and the hospitals they will have new services of Ultrasonografy, Traumatology, Cardiology, Endocospía, Rays X, Menstrual Regulation, smaller Surgery, Optometry, Estomatology, Ophthalmology, and other important specialties never before within reach of the population in these assistance units. The announcement made it the Cuban leader when making the closing of the Central Commemorative Act for the Anniversary 53 of the Assaults to the Barracks Moncada and Carlos Manuel of Grass that took place in the Square of the Homeland of Bayamo, in the county of Granma, winner of the national headquarters of so important date for the Cubans. They will "be more than 150, around 200 the policlinics of the country with these conditions, thanks to the reconstruction program and modernization that it is executed, that which not alone it will facilitate the necessary improvements and the comfort of the facilities, but also, and it is the most important thing, the readiness of medical teams of the highest technology for the benefit of the different services of health", the leader of the Revolution was plentiful. Although the program of rehabilitation of the policlinics has not still concluded, today the positive impact of this can already be verified in the system of health of the country and in particular in the county of Granma, Fidel added before more than a hundred thousand granmenses that participate at once national that transmits live the national chain of radio and television, International Cubavisión and I Radiate Havana Cuba. Granma has received .informed, numerous medical teams of high technology that, the same as the other ones existent in the rest of the country, they have allowed the benefit of specialized services to the population. "The eight policlinics finished in the county, it expressed, the same as the other ones 165 concluded in the whole country, they have new services of Ultrasonografy, Traumatology, Cardiology, and Endoscopy, among other specialties." Until the year 2002, all these services were only lent in the hospitals of the country; people were forced to go to this type of assistance center but, now, he/she will be able to leave to a policlinic that is near the residence area, and it is possible thanks to the reconstruction program and modernization of the policlinics, although not yet he/she has ended, it emphasized. The reconstruction program and modernization of the policlinics that today is attacked in the Island have among their goals also the one of offering a group of important services that alone they are offered in the hospitals .That they need them, and they will follow them having equally or improve for the nature of this type of assistance center. Equally, he added the Cuban leader, the policlinics they will have a clinical modern laboratory in which will be able to be carried out all the exams of blood, he urinates, fecal grounds, among other very necessary tests for the determination or confirmation of an illness. The policlínics, he also specified, they will lend their services the 24 hours. "Why would they have to be closed, if the pain can happen in any moment? Why to impose them an union norm of schedule of work as if was a factory of automobiles or a navy?", Fidel wondered and, at the time, he gave the answers: "Not never forget that to the hospitals human beings go; children, young, adolescents, women and men, old men with a problem of health or for an accident; because all the human beings are inclined to these affections." About the service of 24 hours in the policlinics, it enlarged that alone four years "ago offered in the hospitals. Before he was necessary to walk, today is in the corner. If somebody has a heart attack or an accident, the medical services are very close and they assist him immediately, and they save them the life, because what kills in those cases is the time that he mediates in transferring the person to a hospital." Another important result of the reconstruction program and modernization of the policlinics is the existence today of services of Intensive Therapy in 118 municipalities of the Island. Their amplification is studied to other places, because it would not be enough that alone a policlínico has this services in the municipality. Although all these ideas are perfected and they are studied to apply it in the most rational way, and in function of the benefit of a good" service of health. It was at this time, where Fidel jocosely threw a lunge to the enemies of the Cuban Revolution: The neighbors of the North don't worry, I won't exercise the power until that age; but me if I will fight until the last minute of my life to make something good, something useful, because we have learned how to be better with every year than it happens to us for above; the human being is ennobled when one makes something for the other" ones. In their closing words, the Cuban leader continued mentioning other outstanding results reached by the winning county of the Central Commemorative Act by the 26 of Julio, the increment of the registration of students of the Artistic Teaching that they cover 16 musical lines; the creation of two military schools Camilo Cienfuegos, and the presence so far of 385 art instructors that assist in 210 schools to more than 52 000 children.
