The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) office in Cuba recognized the responsible, altruistic and supportive work of the country's youth in the fight against COVID-19, local media reported today.

The UNFPA sent a message to the youth where it highlighted that in situations of changes in their daily life routines, young people and adolescents spent time in useful activities, reported the national newspaper Juventud Rebelde.

With leadership and commitment, youth are instrumental in ensuring that no one was left behind in protecting and safeguarding what was most precious: people's lives, added the letter sent on World Population Day the day before.

The representatives of the specialized agency of the United Nations in Cuba emphasized that it is vital to have adolescents and young people in order to implement health promotion strategies, especially in emergency situations.

Through the communiqué, the UNFPA stressed that in the recovery stages it is necessary for young people to maintain intergenerational relationships based on respect and to continue to play a leading role in humanism in the service of others.
