Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Casfro's Cuba Takes Pride In State's Health System HAVANA (HIM) _ Will, health care a mailer of debate in many countries, it is lim> Ihe great prides of Fidel Caslro's Cuba. How the syslein works was explained In visiling American newsmen by Dr. Francisco Hojas Ochoa, statistical direc- tor of the ministry of public health and professor of pre- ventive medicine at the Uni- versity of Havana. The firsl thing, Oclioa said, is that all hospital services are financed, organized and belong lo Ihe slate. They are free to every Cuban by law. The free services include doctors' fees, surgery, care, tests, hospital charges, hos- pital medicines, and all medi- cal consultation and tests out- side hospitals as well. They do not yet include all drugs outside the hospital but since the state is the only manu- facturer, these arc said to be cheap and [or certain classes of people free also. Abortion is available on demand and free because It is performed in hospital. Private practice still is pel-milled ill Cuba, Ochoa said, bill mil of K.OIIII practic- ing physicians in the country, fewer than 2011, mostly older men, engage exclusively in it. The fact that a large number of doctors were among the more than half million refu- gees who fled to the U. S. aft- er Castro came tn power did not come up. Furthermore, since Ibe graduating class at Ihe Ha- vana medical school voted not to engage in private practice, he said, the government has banned any new private practitioners. Another small group of several hundred doctors take part in the public health serv- ice for which they are paid at part-time rates by the state and maintain some private practice on the side.
