We agree that it is important to reduce the digital divide and the impediments to access technology. However, this principle should not be restricted to families and communities within countries; but also between countries, Mirthia Julia Brossard said in the continuation of the debates of the 50th session of the body based in this Swiss city.

Speaking in an interactive dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on the Right to Education, Koumbou Boly Barry, the Cuban diplomat denounced the polarization of wealth, inequality and lack of access to financial resources as scenarios that limit the real capacity to promote digitization.

At the forum, she recalled that these situations hit developing nations in particular.

The Covid-19 pandemic imposed new challenges in the field of education, and digitalization was an important tool to keep children in the classroom, although it could not be used equally in all countries.

Brossard stated at the Human Rights Council that Cuba prioritizes digitalization in the education sector and the inclusion of modern technologies in the learning process.

He also reiterated that on the island education is a right of the people, is at all levels public and free, and constitutes a responsibility of the State.
