Description

The United States has not yet decided to ensure that every citizen has access to health care services at reasonable cost. The United States spends more on health care than any other country by far. Yet the health status of the US population, when compared with that of like nations, remains poor. The US system does not operate efficiently, fares poorly in terms of health equity, and has an illness and injury care industry with many uncoordinated "systems" focused on treating individuals rather than on improving health status. There are lessons for us in Cuba's health system. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
