Cuba's health care system is more effective than ours
"In terms of having healthy people, the Cuban health service
outperforms other low and medium income countries and in some cases,
outperforms much richer ones too.
Despite spending a fraction of
what the United States spends on healthcare (the World Bank reports Cuba
spends $431 per head per year compared with $8,553 in the US) Cuba has a
lower infant mortality rate than the US and a similar life expectancy."
