Cuba is considered by many people as a world leader in health care, providing for all its citizens as well as to millions of others around the globe. Based on the belief that sharing expertise and effective practices will improve health outcomes for everyone, MEDICC works to foster cooperation among health care workers in the U.S., Cuba, and other parts of the world. What could be more basic to human well-being than ensuring improved health, particularly for the world’s poor? MEDICC’s wide-ranging program includes, among many other things, the sponsorship of educational exchanges, financial and professional support for students and graduates of the Latin American Medical School, publication of a journal focused on Cuban health and medicine, and economic assistance following natural disasters. This broad-based program demonstrates the vision that "Health for All Is Possible. "

As a correspondent in the United States, I have been interested in what Cuba has done with health care over the years. MEDICC is an exceptional organization which studies what Cuba does with health care and helps the US understand what we could use from their ideas. MEDICC promotes public health ethics and responsibility and it helps students returning from studying in Cuba to become productive citizens in the US. We would benefit from more organizations like MEDICC.

MEDICC is an exemplary program of education, exchange and public health, in Cuba and in several programs discovering and developing ways to add dimension and depth from Cuban accomplishments to similar programs in the United States, especially in California. MEDICC, most recently, has been critically active in facilitating the incorporation of integrative medicine into Cuba's clinical practice, medical education and research. The name of Cuba's breast cancer support group, "Alas por la Vida" (Wings for Life), could serve as well as a description of MEDICC's accomplishments.

I first learned of MEDICC in 2002, and have followed their work over the last decade. They are solidly managed and have a clear and important purpose. Most recently I had the pleasure of attending a meeting where community health personnel, from county directors to community workers, from many parts of the US attested to the significant impact that MEDICC, through its exchanges, had in their communities. My lasting thought was how much we too in the US can learn from our colleagues in Cuba.

Right on!
