MetadataShow full item record
For Cuba, the MDGs are a priority despite having met in advance some of the goals primarily in education and health; these are a result of the social model and social policies implemented since 1959 until today. The initiative Faces, Voices and Places began as a proposal of the local authorities of the central level of health and the PAHO/WHO Representative Office. With the attendance of the Municipal Health Department a participatory diagnosis by each MDG was carried out, defining clear interventions such as specified by the initiative. Thus the problems to work with Faces, Voices and Places were identified. Cotorro is a municipality located on the outskirts of Havana Province, covering an area of 65.7 km2.
