Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez's deteriorated health causes concerns to his main political ally and trade partner, Cuba, as many Cubans fear that the ghost of the hard 1990s -the collapse of the Cuban economy upon the end of the Soviet Union's aid- may reemerge.

"Today Venezuela resembles what the Soviet Union was for many years until 1990. The only difference is that if (Venezuelan) aid is cut off, the consequences will be devastating because Cuban infrastructure is currently in worse conditions," Cuban opposition economist Oscar Espinosa Chepe told AFP.

"At the international market price, how could Cuba pay for the 100,000 oil barrels per day" it imports from Venezuela, Espinosa Chepe wondered. 

For his part, Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina expressed his support to his Venezuelan counterpart and prayed for Chávez's health.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
