    Another health parameter linked to infant mortality, is the maternal mortality rate. Cuba’s maternal mortality rate is 33 deaths per 1,000 live births. This health statistic is high despite the fact that Cuba has the lowest birth rate in Latin America. The doctors are supposed to suggest abortion in risky pregnancies and, in some occasions, must perform the interruption without the consent of the couple. Cuban pediatricians constantly falsify figures for the regime. If an infant dies during his first year, the doctors often report he/she was older (infant mortality rate is define by the number of deaths during the first year of life per thousand live births). Otherwise, such lapses could cost him severe penalties and his job.

    Cuban medical care has never recovered from Castro's takeover, when the country’s health care ranked among the world's best. He won the support of the Cuban people by promising to replace Batista’s regime with free elections, and to end corruption. Once in power he made himself dictator and instituted Soviet-style Communism. Cubans not only failed to regain their democratic rights, their economy plunged into centrally planned poverty.

    Many treatments we take for granted aren't available at all, except to the Communist elite or foreigners with dollars. For them, Castro keeps hospitals equipped with the best medicines and technologies available.

    One of the most readily apparent problems with the health care system in Cuba is the severe shortage of medicines, equipment, and other supplies. This problem is by no means limited to the health sector. Cubans often have tremendous difficulty obtaining basic consumer goods and other necessities, including food.

    Another indicator that Cuba couldn't have a good healthcare system is their former enabler: the Soviet Union was clearly well behind the US, UK and other western nations in the area of health care. Many doctors from the Soviet Union who immigrated to the US had great difficulty meeting the minimal standards to be a practicing M.D. in the US. Since the "great" Cuban health care system is modeled on the former Soviet Union's medical education system, the Cuban doctors confront the same problem.
