Universal Public Health Systems and the cuban experience in the face of the Covid-19 Pandemic
Keywords:Covid-19, Cuba, Universal public health systems, Socio-sanitary strategies
In the context of the current sociosanitary crisis, we seek here to debate and reflect on policies and strategies to confront Covid-19 in Cuba, which has achieved superior results to other countries in the Latin American subcontinent and most OECD countries. From a series of videoconference interviews conducted with prominent Cuban leaders and academics, we chose here to shed light on the issues that we think are urgent to (re)think about the tragic Brazilian experience. Role of the State, government and health system – especially Primary Healthcare in prevention, surveillance, and promotion –, relations between management, services, sciences and biopharmaceutical industry, community and women's participation in the ongoing process are some of the topics discussed.
