The 4th International Conference on Child Protection (Proinfancia 2023) will end in this capital on Friday, after debates and exchange of experiences that will contribute to building a culture of communication on these issues.

Some 50 foreign experts and 150 Cuban researchers are attending the event, which opened at Havana’s Palco Hotel on September 27.

The meeting, convened by the Ministry of the Interior (MININT), under the auspices of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) office, was a new opportunity to strengthen collaboration, the second head of the MININT Directorate of Attention to Minors, Colonel Luciana Calixtro, said.

The scientific program was developed in plenary sessions with exceptional interventions, keynote speeches, debates on papers, panels, and round tables, and participants toured centers specialized in child protection.

Topics such as the care of children and adolescents according to the new Cuban Family Code, prevention of violence, the treatment and protection of children and adolescents who are offenders or victims, and the impact of social media, the Internet, and the integral education of minors were on debate.
