Millions of citizens marched in cities across the country to demand wholesale reforms to the country’s crippled public health care system, which faced huge shortages of doctors and a failing infrastructure.

    That’s when the tiny island nation of Cuba stepped in to this neglected area of the world’s seventh-largest economy.
