SDPCW#8 – Public Health Systems (Cuba)
Eighth presentation in the lecture series: ‘Self Determination in the Post Colonial World’, by Dr Tim Anderson, 2021.
We will keep posting these online videos (over the next 2 or 3 months) until there is a full set for the complete unit of study, which can be freely read, without assessment. It is up to an associated university to take it up as a unit of study, adding assessed tasks and allowing it to count for a credit towards degree studies.
