In 1988, France, West Germany, Italy and Canada followed the U.S. But, in 2013,  France droppe to 26, Germany to 16 , Italy to 21, and Canada is 9th.

The Presidenta writes “the social policy of our government has emphasized the comprehensive early childhood care and seniors. The Red de Cuido (care network) has increased 50% coverage for children and 75% coverage for seniors.

“We still have many challenges to face, but we must move forward on what we have built and not retrace our steps.’
