Cuba: Health and Tourism for All

Cuba, a major tourist destination in the Caribbean, combines recreational options with the possibility of receiving a wide range of medical treatments to improve health and the quality of life.

The Caribbean island promotes specialized treatments as part of health tourism programs based on the country's healthcare indicators that place the country among the developed countries.

Moreover, agreements have been signed with travel agencies that operate in Cuba's major tourist-sending markets.

Medical treatments in Cuba rank in the first of seven lines of business provided by the country's medical institutions.

In that regard, the main demands are linked to world health problems such as cancer, diabetes, neurological rehabilitation, cardiology, heart surgery, ophthalmology and orthopedics.

Generally, several treatments are provided at the Ibero-American School of Orthopedics and Traumatology, the International Neurological Restoration Center (CIREN) and the Health Center La Pradera.

Cuba commercializes medical services in more than 40 countries, and in 2014, the island received requests for medical care in its institutions and clinics from some 35 international agencies.

In addition, Cuba promotes the use of stem cells, hemodialysis, integral attention to diabetic patients, cardiovascular treatments and programs against addictions.

It also provides unique treatments against diseases like retinitis pigmentosa, and a complete vaccination program with products developed at Cuban research centers.

Specialized treatments are provided in facilities where several ophthalmological problems are treated or where specific methods are used to cure skin diseases such as vitiligo.

Treatments to lose weight, fight stress and aging, and regular checkups are part of a wide range of services provided to tourists.

Cuba's natural conditions also contribute to the development of medical treatments, as many natural resources complement the most varied medical procedures.

In order to provide those services, Cuba has a large network of international clinics, pharmacies, optician's shops and specialized institutions to improve people's quality of life in the country's main tourist destinations.

Furthermore, Cuba has more than 280 hospitals, 400 polyclinics, 116 dental clinics and some 1,500 medical establishments in condition to meet the most complex demands from human health.
