In summary of the most interesting of these:
- According to the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, more than 75% of doctors with Cuban medical degrees cannot pass the U.S. licensing exam given by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates
- Most Cuba-certified cannot pass the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates exam for certification as physician assistants
- In 1958 before Cuba became a Communist regime, Cuba ranked 13th in the world in infant mortality. Now, it is 43rd in the world, based on massive fraud in its reporting of infant mortality. 41.5% of pregnancies are ended with abortions, because any indication of a troubled birth results in an abortion, in order to keep the infant mortality rate low. In addition, Cuban "doctors" are pressured to report the deaths of children younger than 1 year old as that of a child older than 1 year old.
- As in all Communist nations, the finer medical facilities so often pictured in propaganda reporting are not available to most people.
