Medical Education Cooperation with Cuba (MEDICC) is a non-profit organization working to enhance cooperation among the US, Cuban and global health communities aimed at better health outcomes. Founded in 1997, our experience has taught us that health care in the United States and developing countries alike – especially for underserved populations – can be informed by Cuba’s singular and evolving health practices, research and policies. We see that the US experience in medicine and medical research can also inform practice in Cuba and the developing world. Above all, we believe that such cooperation is urgently needed to radically improve global health and achieve the birthright of health for all worldwide.
Health for All is Possible
MEDICC supports education and development of human resources in health committed to equitable access and quality care, providing the Cuban experience to inform global debate, practice, policies and cooperation in health.
