Cuban deputies analyze youth policy implementation

Havana, Dec 18 (Prensa Latina) Deputies of Cuba's National Assembly of People's Power (ANPP) on Monday analyzed progress reached in rolling out the Comprehensive Policy for Children, Adolescents and Youth in Cuba.

Deputy Prime Minister Luis Perdomo pointed out that in order to comply with this policy, work is being done in some strategic areas including the training of cultural and identity values, sexual and recreational health, as well as the use of information and communication technologies.

Taking the floor at the Commission of Attention to Youth, Children and Equal Rights of Women, Perdomo explained that the new regulation is in process and includes the development of a legal instrument which guarantees respect and includes the duties of these population groups.

Meanwhile, the Education Minister Naima Trujillo stressed that all actors of society must be linked to comply with the policy according to the demands from children, adolescents and young people.

The norm, she said, cannot be welfare-based one, but rather all those involved must work for the existence of more critical subjects, based on decolonizing concepts.

The Comprehensive Policy for Children, Adolescents and Youth, approved past July, responds to the significance given by the Cuban State to the new generations and the need to transform the current legislation in line with the 2019 Constitution.
