Indigenous health care in Venezuela

It' s hard to know what's what with reports on Venezuela in the US media, but, with or without a grain of salt, an interesting story about the expulsion of US missionaries from indigenous areas of the Venezuelan Amazon, and its effects. A highlight quote:

“They put pictures of Yanomami everywhere, on tourist brochures, in airport lobbies, even on ambulances here in Puerto Ayacucho,” said Andrés González, 38, a Yanomami leader. “That’s where they want us, in pictures, not positions of power,” he said.
