The Atlantic Philanthropies Award $5.8 Million to Medical Education Cooperation with Cuba (MEDICC)
Date:11/12/2013

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

Medical Education Cooperation with Cuba (MEDICC) today announced a $5.8 million grant from The Atlantic Philanthropies to enhance cooperation among the US, Cuban and global health communities working towards better health outcomes and equity. A portion of the award is a “challenge grant”, matching other foundation and individual donations one-to-one.

“We are honored that MEDICC has been chosen for a significant grant from The Atlantic Philanthropies, noted Gail Reed, MEDICC’s International Director. “And we are grateful for Atlantic’s support over the past decade, made in the spirit of its founding chairman, Chuck Feeney’s philanthropic philosophy of ‘giving while living’—aiming to make transformative change now, not later.”

Since 2002, MEDICC has received $16.7 million from Atlantic to foster exchange with Cuban health professionals, gain insights on Cuba’s use of scarce resources to achieve its impressive health outcomes, and promote cooperation leading to better health in Cuba, the USA and poor communities globally.

“We have greatly benefited from Atlantic’s vision of lasting change, and the foundation’s confidence in MEDICC has motivated others to support our work,” said Dr. Peter Bourne, chair of the MEDICC Board of Directors.

The four-year award will propel MEDICC signature programs:

  •     Publication of MEDICC Review, the only English-language, peer-reviewed journal on Cuban health and medicine, soon to publish a Latin American edition in Spanish.
  •     Support for Havana’s Latin American Medical School, the world’s foremost experiment in socially accountable medical training, graduating 16,000 p
