Working abroad on one of the numerous humanitarian missions that Cuba has participated in since 1963 can result in doctors earning greater compensation. In 2015, there were 37,000 medical professionals from Cuba employed in 77 other nations, bringing in billions of dollars annually for the government. Perhaps this is another reason for Cuba's high standard of medical care: the country's doctors help the cash-strapped government fight the United States trade embargo by bringing in valuable foreign currency.South Africa Country Profile -

Although it is already clear that this island has excellent healthcare, statistics clearly show how Cuba performs in comparison to developed nations: Cuban people can expect to live 77 years on average for males and 81 years on average for women, which is comparable to the UK's 79 years on average for men and 83 years on average for women. One doctor is available for every 150 Cuban citizens, which is a remarkable ratio that is higher than that of many affluent countries. Critics claim that this ratio is at the expense of Cuban doctors' modest salary of about $60 per month.
