Cuba builds medical travel promotion

Cuba’s economic tourism revitalisation plan includes health, wellness and medical tourism, and the country says it is ready to welcome tourists again in total safety and in compliance with new health protocols.

The Health in Cuba programme includes therapies and treatments with Cuban technology that help stop the progress of cancer cases. It also offers a centre for neurological restoration; personalised treatments; various types of surgery, health, and wellness programmes for the elderly; drug detoxification; and rehabilitation.

Telemedicine medical advice from Cuba is also available via online consultations, which customers in America can use as they cannot legally travel to Cuba for treatment.

The Cuban Ministry of Public Health, the Comercializadora de Servicios Médicos Cubanos S.A., the Cuban Ministry of Health, and the Chamber of Commerce is also actively supporting FITSaludCuba next month, the country’s first International Medical Tourism and Wellness Fair.  It will aim to showcase products, treatment experiences, and advances in health tourism in the country.
