The health system built by Cuba's leader Fidel Castro's government has produced results on a par with rich nations using meager resources of a developing country. The Cuban system is extolled in filmmaker Michael Moore's new documentary "SiCKO," an indictment of U.S. health care for tending more to the profits of insurance and pharmaceutical companies than public health.
