De Vos, P. (2019) Cuba's strategy toward universal health. International Journal of Health Services, 49 (1), pp. 186-192.
After 40 years of the Alma Ata Declaration on primary health care, the Pan American Journal of Public Health published an actualized overview of Cuban policies on health and well-being. It describes the longstanding and successful experience of this socialist country, developed in adverse and complex circumstances. The Cuban case remains one of the leading examples of a comprehensive governmental approach toward population health and well-being. The analysis underscores the essential role of continued political will toward population health.
