Share | would like to extend an invitation to you to represent the Washington State Pharmacy Association (WSPA) as a member of the WSPA Delegation to Cuba, April 16 - 21, 2018. This delegation will be developed in cooperation with the Cuban Ministry of Public Health and offers a unique opportunity to meet directly with our Cuban counterparts as we learn about the challenges and advances of pharmaceutical delivery and education in Cuba.


Delegates will have the opportunity to participate in professional meetings and meaningful site visits each day. Delegate interests will be taken into account in determining the final topics that will be covered; however, a sample of topics has been preliminarily identified as the following:


1. Learn about the overall structure of the healthcare model in Cuba and the role of pharmacy in this structure;

2. Learn about the priorities for public health in the next few years;

3. Learn about pharmaceutical distribution through the community health structure;

4. Learn about the advances and research developed in Cuba as a result of the US Embargo;

5. Understand pharmacy and medical education.


The estimated cost per delegation member is $4,895.00. This cost includes essentially all costs associated with participation, except for air travel to and from Cuba. Please see the attached itinerary for full program details.
