According to this TED Talk, Cuba spends 1/20th what the United States spends per capita on healthcare and is renowned for its quality and focus on primary care. Is this points for Communism over Capitalism, or a matter of priorities and responsibilities without the bane of health “insurance” or Corporatism?

Wish I knew … but I find hints, where the speaker describes care as community-based rather than hospital-centered, the approach holistic, including giving attention to economic and environmental considerations.
