The current book introduces an unique (new) standpoint on Cuba. This booklet revisits Cuba's selection, after the 1959 revolution, to enhance a complicated healthcare and clinical procedure. It additionally introduces new facets of the matter development/underdevelopment. From the beginning, each attempt of the Cuban management and medical group was once pushed by way of the first function of assembly the country’s simple financial and social wishes. fast key measures taken after the revolution integrated unfastened schooling as much as  greater degrees and loose healthiness providers. in just a few many years 3rd global ailments have been defeated and a primary international overall healthiness profile was once completed. within the sciences, help and collaboration used to be sought and welcomed from either Soviet and western international locations. in addition, as a result of backward place of the Soviet Union in genetics and molecular biology, within the early Seventies Cuban scientists have been knowledgeable in those fields frequently through Italian biologists. within the following decade, before everything hoping on contacts with American and Finnish experts, Cuban biologists and physicians outfitted a wide business biotechnology advanced to provide and commercialize Cuban-made, and sometimes invented, medications and vaccines.

In the early Nineteen Nineties the unexpected cave in of the Soviet Union and the socialist marketplace created an unheard of problem. but Cuba’s clinical approach considerably resiled, regardless of unavoidable setbacks. This hindrance used to be confronted by way of confirming and reinforcing govt help for biotechnology, with the end result that at the present time Cuba excels at a world point within the average capital-intensive box of biotechnology.

While this booklet is mainly dedicated to historians of technology and expertise and to biotechnologists, it is of curiosity to the overall public.
