Doctors say Venezuela's health care in collapse

In this Oct. 28, 2013 photo, Evelina Gonzalez is reflected in a mirror in her bedroom in Maracay,Venezuela. Gonzalez is on a list of 31 breast cancer patients waiting to have tumors removed at one of the country’s biggest medical facilities, Maracay’s Central Hospital. The hospital’s physicians sent some 300 patients in need of cancer operations home last month. Supply shortages, unsanitary conditions and equipment failures have forced them to scratch all but emergency surgeries. (AP Photo/Ariana Cubillos)
