CNDH signs a joint Action Plan with the United Nations Population Fund for the year 2021

Ms. Amina Bouayach, Chairperson of the National Human Rights Council (CNDH), and Mr. Luis Mora, Resident Representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), signed a joint Action Plan for the year 2021, on Tuesday 6 April 2021 in Rabat, Morocco.

This Action Plan is part of the two parties’ partnership aiming at promoting the rights of women and girls, including the rights to sexual and reproductive health in Morocco.

The CNDH-UNFPA Partnership is founded on three main axes: the promotion of sexual and reproductive health rights, advocacy to fight against child marriage and the implementation of international instruments recommendations that are related to the right to sexual and reproductive health.

Ms. Bouayach stated that this partnership seeks to contribute to the promotion of women and girls’ rights and is, by extension, part of the efforts made to counter inequalities and enhance the values of equality in society. She also underlined the importance of ensuring a permanent mobilization and enhancing continuous capacity building.

For his part, UNFPA Representative affirmed that the UNFPA supports Morocco’s policies to promote the rights of women and girls, particularly their rights to sexual and reproductive health.

Considering these rights as a prerequisite for the achievement of sustainable development, Mr. Mora added that the UNFPA will work together with the CNDH to support its efforts in terms of capacity building and social mobilization to ensure rights for all and everywhere.
