Mr. President,

Denmark welcomes the delegation of Spain and thanks it for its presentation.

We commend Spain for adopting a National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights.

Comprehensive sexuality education is key in protecting sexual and reproductive health and rights, especially for women and girls.

Denmark recommends the Government to include comprehensive sexuality education in the school curriculum.

Denmark notes the concern of the CEDAW committee concerning the prevalence of violence against women.

Denmark recommends the Government to ensure that victims of gender-based violence have access to immediate means of redress and protection.

Denmark wishes Spain a successful review.

Thank you.
