Cuba doubles down on social policies of UN´s Agenda 2030

United Nations, Feb 7 (Prensa Latina) Cuba has reaffirmed at the United Nations its commitment to the social policies for the 2030 Agenda, despite the country's complex economic situation and the tightening of the hostile and unjust economic US blockade.

During the session of the UNGA’s Commission for Social Development, Cuba’s alternate permanent representative Yusnier Romero recalled that social protection, more than a guarantee of employment, salary and economic security, is a constitutional right for Cubans.

At the same time, Cuba is presently working on implementing a program for Decent Work, the Strengthening of Safety and Health at Work and an Employment Management Service.

Social assistance, he added, benefits nearly 370,000 Cubans, including mothers of severely disabled children, the elderly and people with disabilities.

Last week, Cuba promoted a three-month increase in maternity and paternity leave, which will now be 15 months, the diplomat added.

At the same time, the Cuban government recently approved the Policy of Integral Attention to Children, Adolescents and Youth, which aims to articulate all factors involved in caring and protecting these groups.

The Cuban representative also stressed the pressing need for national efforts in favor of social development to be backed up with concrete actions that show a true spirit of solidarity and international cooperation.
