Cuba’s Human Development Level is High, says the UNDP


Cuba obtained in 2012 the High Human Development category, and classed among the first countries in the world with high values in this indicator, as informed on Thursday by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

Its report on Human Development 2013, “The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World,” was presented in Mexico City by UNDP Administrator Helen Clark, and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.

The text acknowledges that the high index of 0.780 shown by the island in human development (HDI) is due to the great social investment carried out by the country throughout the years, particularly in health and education.

Cuba also heads the list of the first five countries of the high human development group showing the greatest increase in the HDI, along with Algeria, Kazakhstan, Iran and Venezuela, adds the document.

With respect to this indicator, the Caribbean nation is second in the region, according to the report released by the Regional Office of the UNDP for Latin America and the Caribbean.
