About Us

Founded in 1997, Medical Education Cooperation with Cuba (MEDICC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote cooperation among the US, Cuban and global health communities to improve health outcomes and equity, offering the Cuban experience to inform global debate, policies and practice.

MEDICC distributes its feature film ¡Salud!, highlighting Cuba’s health system and its global cooperation— a documentary that has reached 100,000 viewers to date; supports US and other socially committed graduates of Havana’s Latin American Medical School; publishes MEDICC Review, the only peer-reviewed journal on Cuban health and medicine; and through our Gateways program facilitates collaboration with major US organizations by providing educational exchanges in Cuba. MEDICC’s Community Partnerships for Health Equity (CPHE) bring insights from Cuba to improve quality and access to health care in communities throughout the US.
