Cuba’s health care achievements directly reflect the decisions of Fidel Castro, the former President of Cuba and a revolutionary, who personally prioritized two services : education and health care. Cuba spends about 10 percent of its GDP on health care. All the health care services, funded by the state, and are free for the citizens of Cuba. If there is one thing for which Cuba has received praise over the years, it is the Communist government’s state-run healthcare system.
