Dominican Republic: RD improves the fulfillment of children’s rights

The Observatory of the Rights of the Child (ODNA) presented yesterday the results of the second edition of the Index of the Rights of the Child (IDN), which show an increase in the fulfillment of these rights throughout the national territory.
For the study, released by the coordinator of the observatory, Nelson Medina, the IDN was classified into three groups: childhood, considered from 0 to 5 years of age; childhood, understood, between 6 and 12 years; and adolescence, between 13 and 17 years old. In addition, the minimum score is 0 and 10 is the maximum.

The IDN of childhood at the national level increased from 4.3 in 2010 to 4.6 in 2019, this being the group that recorded the smallest increase.

The greatest positive impact on this IDN of childhood comes from the education environment indicators, where the initial level reaches 50% of the population in this life cycle and in which only 1.7% abandons it.
