Get a first-hand account of Cuba’s exceptional healthcare system when we visit local doctors and patients in a Cuban polyclinic.
Cuba has a lower infant mortality rate than the US and equal expected life spans but spends 90% less on healthcare per person. How is this possible? You’ll find out during an up-close look at Cuba’s universal, single-payer system in a polyclinic – an all-purpose hospital. We’ll meet with the facility’s doctors and patients to better understand how Cuba’s informal, less-technologically advanced system manages to keep people healthy.
