CNN: Venezuela health system in worse condition than expected, according to survey
“A survey of 104 health facilities in Venezuela, commissioned by the opposition-controlled National Assembly, paints a grim picture of a collapsed system hurting for even the most essential goods and services. … The U.S. State Department says it stands ready to send in aid as soon as the Venezuelan government agrees [to] accept it. Leaders from Brazil [and] Colombia have also made similar pledges (Jones et al., 3/28).
