More than 5,000 Patients Treated by Cuba’s Health-Tourism Company

More than 5,000 patients from 38 countries have received medical treatment in Cuba since September this year, at international clinics led by the government-run Cubanacan Tourism and Health Company. 

In statements to ACN, Calixto Noche, commercial manager of the entity said in addition to the services provided to tourists, another 1,700 people, including foreign residents in Cuba and members of diplomatic missions have been treated in the clinics located throughout the country.

Calixto Noche said Cuba has contracts with nearly 40 countries, mostly in the American continent, except for the U.S, and including the Caribbean and Europe. He mentioned Canada, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Mexico, Chile, Bahamas, Jamaica, Portugal, France, Germany, Italy and Spain have relations with the company Cubanacan Tourism and Health gave medical treatment to nearly 9,000 foreigners in 2006 in the specialties of orthopaedics, general surgery, aesthetics, cardiology and paediatrics, noted the expert.

Since its opening in 1994, the Company offers visitors programs to improve their physical and mental conditions while enjoying their stay in Cuba. Cubanacan’s medical services are part of the country’s health infrastructure and of hotels and clinic networks in the main tourist areas.

The Cuban entity has a wide program specializing in three directions: prevention, treatment, and life quality, explained Noche.

Diseases such as vitiligo, psoriasis, alopecia and retinitis pigmentosa are among those most frequently treated.

Likewise, other programs are aimed at the restoration and rehabilitation of the neurological system, said the commercial expert. He noted that people suffering Parkinson, Alzheimer or Multiple Sclerosis have been able to recover the normal state of the nervous system thanks to methods applied at the clinics which have been proved efficient internationally.
