Cancer: In 2008, cancer mortality rates were highest in the US (168 per 100,000 people), followed by Canada (146) and Cuba (102). By 2010, these figures had shifted slightly with the US recording 161 deaths per 100,000 people, followed by Canada (142) and Cuba (96). The slight decrease in cancer-related deaths can be attributed to greater access to preventative healthcare measures such as better screening processes for early detection.
HIV/AIDS: HIV/AIDS prevalence is much higher in the US than it is in either Canada or Cuba. In 2008, 0.6% of Americans living with HIV/AIDS compared to 0.2% of Canadians and just 0.1% of Cubans. By 2010 these numbers remained relatively unchanged as there were still 0.6% of Americans living with HIV/AIDS while both Canadian and Cuban numbers stayed at 0.2%. This difference could be due to more widespread awareness campaigns about safe sex practices and sexual health initiatives targeting high-risk groups within the United States population that are not present or less active within either Canadian or Cuban populations.
