United Nations ponders advances in social policies in Cuba

Havana, May 4 (Prensa Latina) The regional director of the United Nations Population Fund for Latin America and the Caribbean (Unfpa), Harold Robinson, praised here today the progress of Cuba's social policies in this area.

Speaking at the High Level Meeting on the subject, held at the Grand Aston hotel in this capital, the official highlighted the 50 years of joint work and the fundamental role of the island in the construction of the regional agenda on Population and Development.

He pointed out this Caribbean nation is at the forefront in the implementation of government actions, projects and programs to promote sustainable development, focused on guaranteeing people’s rights.

He pointed out that the experience of Cuba is crucial in the elaboration of social policies aimed at achieving Sustainable Development Goals and the fulfillment of the United Nations 2030 Agenda in the most unequal region on the planet.

For her part, Deputy Prime Minister Inés María Chapman reaffirmed the country’s commitment to promote sustainable development with an inclusive vision, through a policy that integrates agencies, governments, institutions and academic centers.

These actions, she said, are part of the Economic and Social Policy Guidelines of the Party and the Revolution that Cuba implements to update its economic model without abandoning socialism.

At the meeting, Cuban specialists presented the actions to stimulate fertility, meet the needs of the elderly population, promote job creation and mitigate the effects of internal and external migration, in the face of the challenge imposed, among other aspects, by ageing of its population.

Likewise, they advanced details of the Childhood and Youth Policy, in preparation, which will strengthen and expand the achievements of this Revolution in this area, through a multisectoral and inter-institutional approach.
