I guess I better speak out on my own thread. @GRamsey_LatAm is gushing over how PAHO/WHO are "intervening" in the disastrous Venezuelan health situation.

Dude: I have been watching #measles and #malaria case numbers here in South America for the past few years.

The deterioration of the health situation in South America is glaringly evident.

A couple of years ago, I watched #malaria case numbers climb over 240,000 in Venezuela, after having been much lower than that for years, and almost eradicated in the 1950s and 1960s.

Soon thereafter, I personally witnessed the #migration out of #Venezuela , which had once been the most prosperous South American nation.

I saw some people so thin they could have been in the horrors of WW2.
