Systemic labour and human rights violations by cuba
Room ASP 1E2 | Interpretation provided in FR, EN, ES
Our group has been in the lead of denouncing for the European Parliament to condemn the systemic labour and human rights violations committed by the Cuban state against its healthcare personnel assigned to work abroad on the medical missions, which are in breach of core ILO conventions ratified by Cuba.
Several EP resolutions have urged Cuba to effectively implement and comply with the American Convention on Human Rights and ILO Conventions 29 and 105 respectively They have also called on the Cuban Government to ensure the right of Cubans to exit and return to their country, including for doctors deployed in medical missions abroad, in line with international human rights standards.
