Popularidad Cuba, I like 82%


UN Assistant Secretary Khalid Malik highlighted Cuba's performance regarding the Human Development Index, which measures three basic aspects-health, knowledge and income.

Malik offered a press conference, accompanied by coordinator of the UN system and representative of the UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Country Director Barbara Pesce-Monteiro.

Malik, who is also the new director of the Office of the PNUD's Human Development Report, said that Cuba improved its position in HDI in 2011 compared to 2010.

He referred to a note of the global HDI website, according to which Cuba is the only country in Latin America among the top 10 with the best not-economic HDI results in the past ten years.

In fact, it is the only developing nation with the highest performance in this aspect, including a two-year increase in life expectancy and an additional five expected years of schooling.

In remarks to Prensa Latina, Malik explained that this indicator, that started to be gauged two decades ago, takes into account the gross domestic income, but it is not the main reason of the analysis, which also includes health and education.

In his opinion, the HDI has become a very important index in the last few years and is used along with other indexes to measure some 180 countries.
