A series of talks from the Cuban capital

Perspectives on Covid from Havana

Perspectives from Havana in a Year of COVID and Embargo

Tuesdays at 6pm EST, starting April 13

Like the rest of the world, Havana and Cuba have just completed the first full year of Covid 19.  It has done so with the full force of the U.S. embargo on its neck, including additional measures enacted by the Trump administration and so far not modified or removed by the Biden administration.  What has Havana been like the past year?  What is it like now? What have been the major challenges and achievements?

Register to attend.  

Please join us to explore these and other questions with 5 leading voices from Cuba.  All events start at 6 pm EST.

April 20:  From the Perspective of Science & Healthcare – Luis Montero Cabrera

April 27:  From the Perspective of a Sociologist and Feminist – Marta Nuñez
