Cuba's healthcare system has achieved renown for its world-class doctors and medical breakthroughs. There's no telling what could be accomplished from a thriving partnership between Cuba and the United States, the world's most advanced medical market. U.S. companies have the resources needed to work with Cuba to develop innovative testing and discover new treatments. This change in U.S. policy could literally save lives. Now it's time for Congress to lift the U.S. embargo that is stifling innovation in healthcare.
