Havana – March 10, 2022. The signing ceremony of the 2022 Annual Work Program was held today, corresponding with the third year of the 2020-2024 Cooperation Cycle between the Government of Cuba and UNICEF, in articulation with the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF 2020-2024).

At UNICEF Cuba’s headquarters, the document was signed by Carlos Fidel Martín Rodríguez, Director of International Economic Bodies at the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Investment (MINCEX) on behalf of the Cuban part, and by Representative Alejandra Trossero on behalf of UNICEF, in the presence of other officials from both institutions.

The purpose of the plan is to contribute to the national efforts aimed at guaranteeing that every child and adolescent may survive and thrive, have access to effective and quality education and be protected from all forms of violence or exploitation. The plan contributes to ensuring the provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as the respect for the fundamental rights of all children and adolescents, especially those who are more vulnerable.

“This Work Program has strategic relevance for the work of UNICEF Cuba. Since the beginning of the current cooperation cycle, the Country Office has mobilized resources to accompany the country in its COVID-19 response and recovery strategy, and will continue to redouble the actions to ensure the achievement of the goals established in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is a crucial moment in Cuba, when everyone’s efforts must be intensified in order to guarantee that no child or adolescent is left behind, particularly in the recovery process after two years of pandemic”, the UNICEF Representative remarked.
