Call for Manuscripts – MEDICC Review    
Since the renewal of diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba, and the signing of several Memoranda of Understanding, including the historic one between the US Department of Health & Human Services and Cuba's Ministry of Public Health, the door has opened to greater opportunities for fruitful cooperation in medicine and health.  Working with governmental and non-governmental health institutions in Cuba and the USA, the Editors of MEDICC Review invite manuscripts from US and Cuban health professionals, researchers and others collaborating in the field of health and social determinants of health to report on the progress of their bilateral work, including projects under way and proposed that have the potential to benefit people in both countries and worldwide.  The upcoming special issue of the MEDICC Review in 2018 is entitled, “US – Cuba Health Cooperation: The Next Frontier.”  The deadline for manuscripts is June 1, 2017.  For author guidelines and format, please visit: www.medicc.org/mediccreview.  Questions may be sent to editors@medicc.org.
