Why Cuba is better than Venezuela
Cuban citizens are better off than Venezuelans when it comes to safety and healthcare, a report from the United States Agency for International Development found.
The report found that Cuban residents have lower rates of hospitalization, have lower death rates, and live longer than Venezuelas, while Venezuelans have higher rates of death, hospitalization and death from cancer.
“Cuba is a better place to live than Venezuela,” the report, written by the American Council for Refugees and the International Rescue Committee, said.
Cuba has a history of anti-poverty programs, such as social security and unemployment benefits.
But the report found a “significant and enduring gap” between Cuban citizens and Venezuelans, with some Cuban residents suffering from chronic health conditions and others having less than 50 percent of their income coming from wages.
The U.S. government has not yet released the full report, but a copy of the report was released in Cuba on Tuesday.
Cuban officials have defended the report as proof that the country has made “tremendous strides” in tackling the nations worst health problems, but U.N. human rights experts have slammed the report for failing to include Cuba as a member of the U.
Ns health insurance exchange.
The United States is the only country in the world that does not have an insurance exchange in Cuba.
The new report found “a number of critical gaps in coverage” that are affecting Cuban citizens, including those without insurance.
“It’s a shame that U. S. policymakers and the media are not paying more attention to the health of Cuban citizens,” said Robert Shulman, president of the American Coalition for Cuban Policy, which advocates for U.s. relations with Cuba.
In the U, there are no universal health insurance plans available for the general population, according to the United Nations.
Instead, Cuban citizens pay for a private health insurance plan in which they can pay premiums based on their income and family size.
They can also pay for private medical coverage for their loved ones, but it is limited in scope.
The health care system in Cuba is a mixture of private and public health care, but Cubans with lower incomes are far more likely to pay for insurance.
But a lack of insurance does not necessarily mean Cuban citizens have a lower level of health.
“People have different needs.
They have different illnesses,” said Josefina Rodriguez, a professor at the University of Havana and an expert on health and social policy.
“You have different health needs.”
Cuba’s health system, according with a report by the Unasa National Academy of Sciences, is “among the most efficient” in the Americas.
The government has taken steps to address health inequalities and improve access to care, the report said.
According to the U., the Cuban health system has a system of health insurance that covers nearly all Cubans, although the coverage varies depending on income.
The Cuban government also has “subsidized and subsidized private health coverage for some individuals and families, as well as paid-for coverage for the elderly, the chronically ill and those with disabilities.”
The Unassa report said the Cuban government has also set up an emergency medical system, which provides medical attention to “a significant number of the population in need, and to those in need of additional care.”
The Cuban health care systems have a “strong social safety net” to support the poorest citizens, but they “are also often lacking in access to basic social services such as health care and housing.”
Cuba has also “had the highest rate of hospitalizations among developed nations,” the UNA report said, with more than 10,000 Cubans per day dying of complications from tuberculosis, hepatitis and cancer.
The American Council also said that a lack on basic health care is one of the most serious problems affecting Cuban people.
A lack of basic health services is one issue the Cuban Government is working to address.
The State Department has been urging the Cuban regime to improve access and quality of care for Cubans.
The Trump administration has “further encouraged” the Cuban authorities to improve their health care infrastructure, said Ambassador to Cuba David Mahoney, who also is a former U. N. special rapporteur on human rights and humanitarian protection.
But in an email, a State Department official said that “our support for the Cuban people has not changed.”
