Control over monetary policy and macro-economic reform was the ultimate objective of the Coup d’Etat. The key appointments from Wall Street’s standpoint are the Central Bank, which dominates monetary policy as well as foreign exchange transactions,  the Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Brazil (Banco do Brasil).

Cuba today stated that respect for the human right to health and development without commercialization or condition, was key to achieving the goal of ending the HIV/Aids epidemic by 2030.

Health must prevail over any consideration of material, technology and intellectual property, Cuban Health Minister Roberto Morales said at a high-level meeting on ending Aids.

Morales defined Cuba’s position before the adoption by the UN General Assembly of a political statement that reaffirms the commitment of Member States to eradicate the epidemic by 2030.
