          Abstract

          Las crisis económicas y financieras se hacen cada vez más frecuentes, profundas y globales, su repercusión ocurre fundamentalmente en los sectores sociales y, como parte de ellos, en la salud. De manera especial estas afectaciones se producen en los grupos más vulnerables y de riesgo, en servicios y programas de salud. A partir de la experiencia vivida por Cuba en la década de los noventa, se estudió la repercusión de las crisis sobre la salud y sus determinantes, las políticas e intervenciones adoptadas y se evaluaron sus efectos. Se alcanzaron juicios conclusivos que permiten conocer mejor estas crisis, su repercusión sobre la salud y las mejores políticas y estrategias para minimizar sus efectos. Sin pretender proponer un modelo de enfrentamiento, se logra identificar las políticas y acciones que más contribuyen a preservar la salud de la población.

          Translated abstract

          The economic and financial crises are increasingly frequent, deep and global; they mainly affect social sectors, and among them, healthcare. These effects are particularly seen in the most vulnerable and risky groups, and in health services and programs. On the basis of the Cuban experience in the 90´s, the impact of crisis on health and its determiners and the adopted policies and interventions were studied. Also their effects were assessed. The conclusive criteria of this paper allowed knowing these crises better, their impact on health, and the best policies and strategies to reduce the effects. This paper was not intended to submit a model of confrontation to the crisis, but it managed to identify the policies and actions that would greatly contribute to the preservation of the population's health.
