    Most healthcare in Cuba is free and run by the state. But if you were a doctor before 1963, you’re allowed to still have a private practice. Cuba is well-known for its universal free public health service, where almost all of the country’s doctors work for the state. But there are a few, elderly doctors who have private practices or can see private patients after hours. Correspondent Michael Voss made an appointment with one. He takes us for a visit with one of the last, remaining private medical workers on the island.

They’re used as cabs, police vehicles, ambulances, and for personal transportation. Number 9. It’s largely an advertising-free zone. No billboards, no commercials, nobody shoving pamphlets at passersby. Much of that is a result of most goods being government controlled and a lack of funds to purchase those that aren’t. Number 8.

In 1999 Cuba opened the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) to give medical scholarships to the brightest from poor areas around the world so that they may become doctors that will eventually return and serve the communities from which they came. Due to decades of political animosity between the United States and Cuba, of which have only recently began to normalize, information about Cuba has been relatively scant. Despite the impasse in diplomatic relations, Cuba provided the offer of free medical scholarships for students in the United States. The film tells the story of the medical scholarship program and the young Americans, many from poor and underserved communities in the United States, who were awarded full scholarships to study medicine at the Latin American School of Medicine in Havana, Cuba. The program is a 6-7 year, fully Spanish, hands-on experience that prepares students to become doctors that are skilled at preventing diseases and treating patients in low-resource conditions with an interwoven focus on community building. At a time when Cuba itself remained off-limits to most Americans, the students and graduates of ELAM share their experiences, challenges, lessons and hopes as they are fully immersed in a new culture while learning a unique and radically different approach to medicine and healthcare

In 1995, for instance, a pioneering team of Cuban and Spanish surgeons developed a new technique for the surgical treatment of Parkinson's disease. Two of the areas where health tourism is growing are treatments for certain eye and skin conditions, including retinitis pigmentosa or night blindness, vitiligo and psoriasis.

Here are 10 fascinating facts about Cuba. With relations between the US and Cuba on the mend, it’s a great time to learn more about the nearby island nation. Number 10. Russian cars rule the roads. The most popular one is the Lada, a vehicle made during the Soviet era and driven to this day. They’re used as cabs, police vehicles, ambulances, and for personal transportation. Number 9. It’s largely an advertising-free zone. No billboards, no commercials, nobody shoving pamphlets at passersby. Much of that is a result of most goods being government controlled and a lack of funds to purchase those that aren’t. Number 8. Sex-change operations are 0 dollars. That’s right – free. They’ve been legally permitted since 2007 and are among the medical procedures included in the nation’s universal healthcare system. Number 7. Guantanamo Bay is a rental. The US pays Cuba about 4 thousand dollars a month for the use of the detention facility. Cuba stopped accepting the payments in 1959, but America isn’t technically squatting as breaking the lease requires the consent of both parties. Number 6. Cuba has one of the world’s highest literacy rates. It’s at a very impressive 99.8 percent. Number 5. There’s no Coca-Cola there. Due to trade embargos, none of the nearly 2 billion servings of the drink sold daily are legally dispensed in Cuba. North Korea is the only other country on the planet where the product isn’t available. Number 4. Cuba’s got a lot of doctors, and they share them. Thanks to its highly regarded and financially accessible medical schooling, the small nation has a large number of qualified health professionals. In recent times 165 of them were been dispatched to aid in tackling the Ebola crisis. Number 3. The right to hitchhike is protected by law. In fact, it’s encouraged. Given the low vehicle to population ratio, drivers with certain license plates are required to stop and pick up people needing rides. Number 2. John Lennon is big in Cuba. Fidel Castro is a fan, so not only did he name a park after the late musician, he commissioned a statue of him. The former leader’s fondness came to him later in life, though, as Beatles music was banned in Cuba throughout the 60s and 70s. The park and the bronze didn’t show up until 2000. Number 1. Cuba is brimming with baseball talent. The Cuban team won the first two Olympic medals offered for the sport, and many celebrated players for US ball clubs hail from there.

Videos taken by doctor Darsi Ferrer and smuggled out of Cuba by therealcuba.com's webmaster show the real health care regular Cubans receive. Very different from the flagship hospital for the Elite, paying foreigners and special interest useful idiots where Michael Moore went for his Sicko propaganda movie. This is only the beginning, there is plenty more this came from and a lot of the raw videos are already here in this youtube profile. These are the hospitals from the other side of the apartheid for regular Cubans that Sicko wouldn't show.

Cuba saw a record number of visitors this year. The island nation has long capitalized on its sun, sea and salsa, but now it's marketing a new attraction: health tourism.The majority of patients come from Venezuela right now, and it's paid for by the government in Caracas. But Cuba is looking to diversify. Cuba is now looking to the United States. With the high cost of health care there, the U.S. is seen as a potential market. Especially now that the two countries have restored diplomatic relations. CCTV Americas's Michael Voss reports.
