Program Description

Get a first-hand glimpse into the dynamic ways in which Cuba approaches healthcare and public health.This is an opportunity for students to learn how a country with such limited resources underwent significant reform and redevelopment to create a system of free, universal health care for all at a level of quality similar to most high-income nations. This course will consist of a combination of coursework at Curry and field visits to health facilities and programs in Cuba. Students will spend time preparing site visits by learning about Cuba’s healthcare system and health successes through readings and instruction. In Cuba, students will witness the healthcare system in action by visiting local hospitals, clinics, and various other public health organizations as they explore the rich culture and history of Havana. During the visits students will learn about health services provided and agencies whose mission includes health promotion and disease prevention. Students will leave this course experience with a more diverse perspective on global public health and will be able to compare another country’s health
practices and system with that of the United States.
