Mdm. President,
Denmark welcomes the delegation of Kenya and thanks it for its presentation.
We commend Kenya for co-hosting the ICPD Summit last year, as protecting sexual and reproductive health and rights remains crucial.
Denmark recommends the Government to improve maternal and child health care by redoubling investments in line with its ICPD commitments.
An independent judiciary is critical to the protection of human rights.
Therefore, Denmark recommends the Government to operationalize the Judiciary Fund as provided for in Article 173 of the Constitution.
Finally, Denmark recommends the Government to ratify the OPCAT.
Denmark wishes Kenya a successful review.
Thank you.
