For his part, the Program Assistant for the United Nations Fund (JNFPA), Juan Lu, pointed out the importance of assuming these challenges regarding childhood. "The health sector has always responded to the health needs of children and adolescents, it is important to make known what are the main actions and programs that exist at the country level in response to this sector of the population that demands greater articulation of the actions that are carried out in their favor,” he concluded.
