[Check against delivery]


Mdm. President, 

Denmark thanks the delegation of Malawi for its presentation and commends its notable commitments made at the Nairobi Summit. 

Ensuring the provision of adequate sexual and reproductive health services is a prerequisite to ensure further progress.

Denmark recommends the Government to reduce maternal mortality by ensuring the provision of adequate sexual and reproductive health services, in particular access to antenatal, delivery and postnatal services.

Providing quality education for every child is of key importance. 

For this reason, Denmark recommends the Government to provide comprehensive sexuality education as part of the school curriculum. 

Finally, Denmark recommends the Government to ratify the OPCAT. 

Denmark wishes Malawi a successful review.

I thank you.
