Turistic Guide of Cuba


Cuba has one of the most comprehensive primary healthcare system in the world (and the lowest infant mortality rate in Latin America) available to all citizens completely free of charge.

Visitors can also receive certain treatments without charge; however, it is recommended that travelers purchase a medical insurance policy since they must pay for most of the medical services they received. There are several international institutions, clinics and pharmacies opened to foreign residents and tourists.

The Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP) is the entity in charge of the National Public Health System and of drawing, executing and controlling the policies established by the government and state, including the development of Medical Sciences and the Medical-Pharmaceutical Industry as a whole.
