Abstract: Nowadays with increasing tensions between the countries and rising of right wing politicians in former liberal countries in response to the neoliberal globalization agenda and its devastating effects, most nations want to keep their sovereignty and become self-sufficient and somehow bring upon the resistive economy. Cuba, having a health status similar to the first world nations despite bearing the longest embargo in the history, has been advocated and hailed so much in healthcare during last decades and for this reason we supposed that it can be a role model for the resistive economy and the countries under embargo. we assessed the situation of Cuban healthcare system by comparing it to 6 other diverse nations and the world itself by using two materialistic criteria of efficiency and effectiveness and two spiritualistic criteria of ethics and equity. The results showed a massive characteristic distinction between Cuban healthcare and other nations. We concluded that Cuban healthcare system can be role model not only for countries tending toward the resistive economics but also whole the world.
