All specialties are developed by teachers and researchers internationally regarded as experts in their disciplines.
Programs for Vitiligo and Psoriasis ( skin related problems) Vitiligo Treatments
The treatment involves the application of a lotion made by the extraction by alcohol (tincture) from human placenta. This lotion helps to increase the reproduction of melanocytes which accelerates the production of melanin in these cells. This medication, unique in the world, is extracted from human placenta and is prescribed by a medical specialist after examining the patient.
Treatment for Psoriasis
The discovery of a special gel helps to combat episodes of Psoriasis by regulating the rate of reproduction of epidermal cells. This treatment is a water-soluble gel which is applied to the skin. Its acts in the epidermis and is absorbed through the skin at the locations where it is applied
It stands as an effective alternative in the world to cure vitiligo through a treatment involving the use of Melagenin Plus (drug obtained from the conservation of human placenta), a unique product created and produced in Cuba by Dr. Carlos Miyares Cao, Second Degree Specialist Medical Pharmacology and Senior Researcher and Director of Placental Histotherapy Havana.

Even in advanced stages of the disease, this treatment has proven that it can offer an improved quality of life. Millions of people throughout the world suffer from lung cancer, but in Cuba few people die of this disease.
Note: the term “vaccine” used by the Cuban specialists does not mean “prevention”. The term is used to refer to a series of injections administered over a period of a year or more. The patient must remain in a specialized clinic for several days and must plan to travel to Cuba 3 or 4 times.
Since this discovery was announced, the demand for this treatment from the entire world has been enormous. But the production capacity at the present time is limited. The infrastructure needed to answer the demand has yet to be put in place. Laboratories for the production and clinics for the administration of this treatment are being developed at this time.

For a country with a developing economy, Brazil has an impressive number of universities in the QS World University Rankings® – many of which have climbed significantly in recent years. There are over 2,300 higher education institutions in Brazil that are recognized by Brazil’s Ministry of Education (MEC) so there’s lots of attractive opportunities for international students who want to study in Brazil.
UNIVERISTEIS IN BRAZIL
Brazil features 22 times in the QS World University Rankings 2014/15, with its highest-ranked university being the Universidade de São Paulo (USP) at 132nd. Next is Universidade Estadual De Campinas (UNICAMP) (206th) which is also based in the São Paulo area.
Unsurprisingly, given this strong global presence, Brazil dominates the QS regional rankings for Latin America. In the QS University Rankings: Latin America 2015, not only is Brazil’s Universidade de São Paulo ranked as the leading university in Latin America for the third year running, Brazil also claims over 80 of the region’s top 300 universities. There are four Brazilian universities in the top 1-: Universidade Estadual de Campinas (3), Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (8) and Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (10), the latter also achieving four QS Stars.
TYPES OF UNIVERISTIES
Universities in Brazil are categorized one of three ways by Brazil’s Ministry of Education (MEC). Interestingly, the MEC acronym comes from it previously being the Ministry of Education and Culture; when the Ministry of Culture (MinC) was created and the name became Ministry of Education, its previous acronym stayed with it! You’ll also find that every university in Brazil has an accompanying acronym to its name.
The six categories of higher education institutions in Brazil are:
Universities: institutions whose core activities are teaching and research for all areas of human knowledge. Community outreach is an important factor in universities, and at least one third of the teaching staff has PhD qualifications.
University Centers: multi-course educational institutions that address all areas of human knowledge but are not obliged to carry out research. They are autonomous and do not need to seek permission from the MEC to open new courses.
Integrated Faculties and Schools of Higher Education: smaller institutions with little autonomy that need to obtain approval from the MEC when opening new courses, certificates or degrees. They offer courses at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. Integrated faculties operate under a common set of regulations set by a larger university institution while schools offer one or more undergraduate courses in a specific area.
There are also institutes which carry out teaching and research on specialized subjects such as science, mathematics, politics, industrial property, military and philanthropy and isolated colleges which are not linked to universities but are private educational institutions that cover specific areas of knowledge, are not required to conduct research and offer courses at undergraduate and post-graduate levels.
The Brazilian higher education system
Undergraduate (bachelor’s) degrees are known as bacharelado and take between three and six years to complete. Aspiring teachers can take a licentiate degree (licenciatura), which takes three to four years to complete while technology degrees (tecnologia) offer highly specialized professional courses such as tourism management or agribusiness and take between two and three years.
Although the licentiate degree has a focus on education and allows the degree holder to teach their chosen subject, the core courses taught are so similar to a bachelor’s degree that the option to undertake a licentiateship or a bachelor’s degree can be made towards the end of the course. Technology degrees, meanwhile, are similar to the US associate’s degree.
Quality assurance is an integral part of Brazilian higher education, with postgraduate programs evaluated regularly (every two years). Programs that score too low are closely monitored by CAPES (Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior), the Brazilian Federal Agency for the Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education.
With Brazil’s push towards improving education standards and its recent moves towards attracting international students, it is becoming easier for international students to apply to study in Brazil. And, of course, Brazil’s beautiful beaches, lively year-round nightlife, easy-going attitudes, rich regional cuisines and incredible biodiversity mean students can expect an exciting and enviable student environment.

During our studies of seven years in Cuba ,we have learnt that the most amazing aspect of Cuban medicine was that, despite its being a poor country itself, Cuba has sent over 124,000 health care professionals to provide care to 154 countries.In addition to providing preventive medicine Cuba sends response teams following emergencies (such as earthquakes and hurricanes) and has over 25,000 students from other countries studying to be doctors at its Latin American School of Medicine in Havana (ELAM, Escuela Latinoamericana de Medicina).
We are hoping to save lives while saving money with the implementation of Cuban style preventive medicine.Our Motto is preventive medicine with preventive measures. We believe that by implementing Cuban style preventive measures we can protect people before their health reaches treatment level.
Our project is to introduce Cuban style preventive medicine with preventive measures to the countries and needed areas of the world with limited human and financial resources.We are planing and hoping to save both money and lives as in the great example of Cuba.Our pilot project will be introduced in Pakistan this year with our 1.000 doctors who are ready to serve the humanity followed Latin American and Caribbean States.
We are team of doctors not only took the oath to serve humanity but also determined to go every part of the earth. Our mission is to make sure that there will be no town ,no village without a doctor. We appreciate what Cuba has given to us “Free education” .
We believe that introducing the Cuban style of preventive medicine to the world is a small token of our appreciation to the noble Commandant FIDEL CASTRO and his hospitable people . Cuban teachers thought us both how to treat patients and that every human being deserves medical help regardless of his or her ethnic, religious and socio-economic background.
We are in the proces of getting connected with over 20.000 doctors from various countries of the world who graduated from Cuban Medical Schools and go to every corner of the world reaching communities without doctors.
“Una idea nacio en Cuba, creció en la CELAC, creada en Canadá oficialmente por los graduados de ELAM y listo para servir al mundo y los pueblos incondicionalmente con el amor y el conocimiento avanzado de la medicina preventiva”
