- Cuba had in 2003 the lowest HIV prevalence in the Americas and one of the lowest in the world
- Cuba has the second highest doctor-to-patient ratio in the world after Italy

2 Palestinian Authority 99.8 [1]
2 Cuba 99.8
2 Estonia 99.8
2 Latvia 99.8

5 Barbados 99.7 [j]
5 Slovenia 99.7 [l]
5 Belarus 99.7
5 Lithuania 99.7
5 Ukraine 99.7
5 Armenia 99.7
10 Kazakhstan 99.6
10 Tajikistan 99.6
12 Azerbaijan 99.5
12 Turkmenistan 99.5
12 Russia 99.5
16 Hungary 99.4 [j]
17 Kyrgyzstan 99.3
17 Poland 99.3 [j]

The bolded ones are either led by or were led by a socialist government. Very impressive.

Agree with Comrade BelgianCommunist. Capitalists wanna kill proletariat's political and class consciousness.

How about education in Cuba? I've read that education costs are free since kindergarten until university. Can anyone give an enlightenment or clarification about that? Thank you.
