Fact of the Day: Cuban Doctors

While Cuba's health-care system is harshly criticized by many, the number of doctors in the country is surprisingly high. In doctors-per-people ratios, Cuba is much higher than most first-world nations.

  2. Wasn't Cuba featured in Sicko as being a good health care country? I remember Michael Moore taking several patients that weren't treated properly in the US to Cuba for appropriate treatment. So, all that criticism is probably to distract from the not-so-good system in the US (not to offend anyone here).

  3. I didn't know this about Cuba. Unfortunately, the media just concentrates on the poverty and political system over there. That's great to know the people have a good heath care system.

  9. I once heard this:

    If you want to have a nice home, drive a nice car, and be really wealthy, become a doctor in the U.S.

    If you want to do your job, become a doctor in any other country.

    Sadly, I think that is very true. I would take Cuba's health care over ours ANY day!
