Salud! Watch this Documentary here on Global Health – Cuba, one of the world’s best health systems

A timely film about the competing values that mark the battle for global health… Beautifully filmed in Cuba, South Africa, The Gambia, Honduras and Venezuela, ¡SALUD! suggests bold new approaches to developing the human resources critical to making health care a global birthright. The film examines the remarkable case of Cuba, a poor country with what the BBC calls “one of the world’s best health systems,” and explores Cuba’s extensive global health initiatives. ¡SALUD! accompanies some of the 28,000 Cuban health professionals now staffing public health systems in over 60 countries. Their stories, and those of young medical students-now numbering 30,000-from the Americas, Africa and Asia studying in Cuba, challenge us to rethink the potential of international health cooperation.

  1. For me, this video is the best source of information on the Cuban health care system. It shows how Cuba views caring for some of the poorest people in the world to be one of its primary goals. It also shows how Cuba is also transforming the lives of people by training thousands from all over the world to become doctors.
