Having written and published about medical advances in Cuba over the past five years, I have become knowledgeable about the health care system in Cuba. In Cuba, rather than waiting six months for a brief meeting, you can call your cardiologist or other specialist and he will come by your house at night to share a cup of coffee. Cuba has without argument the best national healthcare system in Latin America, and one of the best in the world. Cuban citizens do not have to pay for medical treatment. A great majority of the population are covered by the Family Doctor Program, whereby they have an easily accessible personal physician in their immediate neighborhood.
