The Right to Basic Human Services

Under the Cuban socialist government, all citizens are ensured the basic requirements for life. Every Cuban citizen receives food rations, a home to live in, guaranteed health care from cradle to grave, a comprehensive education limited only by one's ability, job training and a job, and individual freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. Public criticism of the government or its leaders is not a right in Cuba. Advocating the overthrow of the government bears severe penalties.
