PROJECT INFOMED - Computers for Cuba's Medical System
When Cuba's Ministry of Public Health lost its $1 million budget
for medical journals and books, they created a computer network
called INFOMED to disseminate medical information.
Project INFOMED is a project of Peace for Cuba Task Force,
designed to provide the Ministry with 800 computer terminals for
use by physicians, medical students and research scientists.
The first 200 machines (IBM-type PC-XTs and 286 ATs) will be
carried in an INFOMED/Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan
Six through the western United States and Canada.
On January 31, 1996 the caravan will cross the Mexican border
into Tijuana, where a chartered Cuban airliner will carry the
cargo, plus the caravanistas, to Havana for a week's program in
1. Caravan drivers and riders to accompany the shipment and to
spend a week in Cuba with IFCO/Pastors for Peace.
2. Participants for the crossing at San Isidro/Tijuana on
January 31, 1996 (Just one day).
3. Computer technicians in Oakland/Berkeley and in Palo Alto/San
Jose areas to service and repair PCs.
