Cuba is famous for its excellent health care system, which is free of charge for its citizens. How can a developing country like Cuba reach such a high level of free health care? We meet doctor Gisela, and go on tour with her trough the neighborhood she attends. But what if you live in a developing country where access to health care is not that obvious? In the Philippines we meet Emma. She is not a doctor, but a Community Health Worker. We witness how she, together with her colleagues, helps her neighbors and organizes them for the right to health.
