Cuba

Cuba. Thriving Healthcare System

The Cuban health system is recognized worldwide for its excellence and its efficiency. Despite extremely limited resources and the dramatic impact caused by the sanctions imposed by the U.S. for more than half a century, Cuba has managed to guarantee access to care for all segments of the population and obtain similar results to those of the most developed nations.

Grenada. Focus on Healthcare

In recent years, a central focus of the Ministry of Health has been to provide its citizenry with excellent primary care. To this end, primary health care services are usually offered free at public health centers. Citizens incur only a small fee for medicine, lab-work, or other diagnostics; and fees are waived for the elderly, children, and the indigent.
