Cuba to Provide Medical Services to Patients in China

HAVANA Companies of Cuba and China signed on Friday in Havana a letter of intent that will seek to bring about sending patients to receive treatment in Cuba and sending Cuban doctors to work in hospitals in China, official media reported.

The Marketer of Cuban Medical Services (SMC) and Chinese tourism company Gujin reached the agreement during the final day of the XXXIV International Fair of Havana (FIHAV), which presented new Cuban exports including various goods and services.

The president of the Chinese company, Shi Hongming, said China will be able to learn more about the strength of the health system of the island and enjoy the medical advances and products of Cuban biotechnology including the drug Heberprot-P, for advanced diabetic foot ulcers, and the CIMAVAX-EGF vaccine for lung cancer.

The vice president of SMC, Yamila de Armas, said the organization currently offers 250 health programs for foreign patients traveling to the island and its product portfolio is supported by seven modes of business, which are dominated by medical services, welfare and research.

He explained that the marketing of the Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP) has branches in almost all provinces, 14 international clinics, 122 medical offices in hotels in the tourist areas, in addition to contractual relations with 140 companies, agencies and tour operators from 41 countries.

SMC offers services to foreign visitors and residents in Cuba and specializes in oncology, surgery, treatment of diabetes using Heberprot-P, medical checkups and comprehensive care for elderly people.

The export of technical and professional services is the main source of income for the island, worth an annual average of $6 billion.
