    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.

    Many physicians had serious complaints about the intrusion of politics into medical treatment and health care decision-making. There is no right to privacy in the physician-patient relationship, no right of informed consent, no right to refuse treatment, and no right to protest or sue for malpractice. Family doctors are also expected to report on the “political integration” of their patients, and to share this information with state authorities.

    What is it that leads people to value theoretically "free" health care, even when it's lousy or nonexistent, over a free society that actually delivers health care? You might have to deal with creditors after you go to the emergency room in America, but no one is denied medical care here; even the poorest Americans are getting far better medical services than most Cubans.

    Brazil's Bolsonaro takes aim at communist Cuba
    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog...nist_cuba.html

    By Monica Showalter
    November 4, 2018

    Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro, the conservative former military man painted by the press as a madman, "Tropical Trump," and all that, is showing signs of a strategic mindset.

    In his first noticible foreign policy move, he's threatened to just shut down ties with Cuba. According to Reuters:

    BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilian far-right president-elect Jair Bolsonaro said there was no point maintaining diplomatic relations with Cuba because it trampled on human rights and there was no business to be done with the communist-run island.

    In an interview published on Friday by Correio Braziliense newspaper, Bolsonaro criticized the Mais Medicos (More Doctors) program under which 11,420 Cuban doctors work in poor or remote parts of Brazil.

    He said that 75 percent of the doctors’ salaries was paid to Cuba’s government and their children were not allowed to join them in Brazil, citing the case of a doctor whose three young children had to stay in Cuba.

    The “Mais Medicos” (More Doctors) program is a modern day version of human trafficking, a multi-billion dollar form of international organize crime, a modern-day slavery. President Jair Bolsonaro called attention to the labor conditions of Cuban doctors that the Castroit regime sent to work in Brazil. Doctors’ family remain in Cuba and their passports are retain by the regime officials in Brazil to prevent them from defecting. Bolsonaro promise to change the program to protect doctors’ human rights. He said that Brazil pay the Castroit regime a considerable amount of money for the doctors’ services, but the doctors themselves get pay very little for their work.

    Finally, after many year of mismanaging of the country by the leftwing politicians, Brazilians elected a president that is in a path to improve their economy and influence in Latin America. Bolsonaro, a strong supporter of national conservatism, has improve ties with the U.S. and advocated for pro-market policies. He has harshly condemned the Castroit regime and threatens to break relations with it.

    23,000 Fewer Doctors A Raw Deal for Cubans
    23,000 Fewer Doctors: A Raw Deal for Cubans | Archivo Diario de Cuba

    MIRTA FERNÁNDEZ Y PABLO DÍAZ ESPÍ | Madrid | 12 de Noviembre de 2018



    Cuba is, today, the country with the most doctors per thousand inhabitants. There are, however, fewer and fewer health professionals on the island providing primary care. An analysis of the Public Health Statistical Yearbooks corroborates this contradiction, and Cubans' perception that they are dealing with a health system that does not correspond to that portrayed in the official propaganda.

    In 2010 the number of doctors assigned to Family Clinics was 36,478, while in 2017 there were only 13,131; that is, a 64% drop in less than a decade.

    Thus, we are witness to a scenario in which Cuba, with more doctors per thousand inhabitants (7.5) than countries like Sweden (4.2), Germany (4.1), the USA (2.6) and Japan (2.4) -according to 2014 data from the World Bank-, has decided to drastically cut primary care for the population.

    The deterioration of the Castroit regime healthcare system is self-evident. It is a disaster for both patients and physicians. Cuban doctors are pay a meager salary, and many quit the profession and look for jobs in the tourist industry where they have access to dollars. The ones that remain in the medical profession have to work long hours in deplorable conditions. Many Cuban physicians in overseas missions defect to freedom.

    Under the Castroit regime health care monopoly, the state assumes complete control. Average Cubans suffer long waits at government hospitals, while many services and technologies are available only to the Cuban party elite and foreign "health tourists" who pay with hard currency. Moreover, access to such rudimentary medicines as antibiotics and Aspirin can be limited, and patients often must bring their own bed sheets and blankets while in care.
