In 2017 , Radical Health and Community Connections for Youth (CCFY) invite you to a Health & Justice Delegation hosted by the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organizing (IFCO) in Cuba. We joined leaders in public health and criminal justice in exploring the following questions: “What is community-driven health care? What happens when justice systems are accountable to local communities? What would a public health approach to criminal justice look like?”
Health & Justice
The U.S. spends trillions of dollars each year on sick care and punishment, responding to the symptoms of an unhealthy society. What if we redirected our resources to promote wellness, health, and community-focused approaches to crime and delinquency? This educational delegation will examine Cuba’s internationally renowned health care system and progressive approaches to criminal justice. The members of the delegation will return with a vision for a community-driven approach to health and justice.
The Cuba Health & Justice Delegation will take place from April 27th to May 7th, 2017. The delegation will stay at the Martin Luther King Center in Havana, and will visit multiple sites such as ELAM (Latin American School of Medicine), the Carlos J. Finley Medical Research Institute, and the Seminary’s Prison Ministry.
