"Another goal is to develop the Medical Hydrology Environment (ecological ranchones) given that Cuba has more than 1,400 manifestations of mineral water throughout the country, and also apply this model of Ecological Cures in Helio thalassotherapy (sea water and sun ) in all coastal municipalities of Cuba (the current 168 municipalities, of which 134 have coast). Besides the development of human resources. Prepare and train staff related to Medical Hydrology offering postgraduate courses of the different variants of the hydrology. For us, this event is an important step of "brotherhood", between FEMTEC and the Cuban Society of Medical Hydrology "added the President.

For Prof. Rafael Ledesma is a priority to develop scientific research demonstrating evidence of the importance of Medical Hydrology in Prevention, Healing and Rehabilitation in Health problems of the Cuban population.
