Havana, July 6 (RHC)-- Cuba reiterated at the United Nations Human Rights Council the leading role of the country's gender equality policies and the protection of persons with disabilities since the triumph of the Revolution on January 1, 1959.

In remarks to the 47th session of that UN body,  Juan Antonio Quintanilla, permanent representative of Cuba in Geneva, said that the Federation of Cuban Women, the associations of people with disabilities, and state institutions and government authorities play an essential role in the prevention of violence.

The Cuban diplomat said on Twitter that the Caribbean nation guarantees technologies and resources to meet the needs of women and girls with disabilities, free of charge and universally, especially medical, legal and social assistance.
