Parliament to promote the wellbeing of women, children and adolescents

Parliament says it is committed to reviewing existing laws and lobby for more resources in a bid to ensure promotion of the welfare of women, girls and adolescents.

Leader of the 148th Inter-parliamentary Union Delegation, Ken Kandodo, made the remarks in Lilongwe during a workshop aimed at analysing existing laws and policies that protect the health rights of women, children and adolescents.

“Malawi has made significant strides in improving health access but there are still gaps that require attention,” said Kandodo.

Executive Director of Health and Rights Education Programme, Maziko Matemba, said despite the health sector receiving the biggest budget allocation, the government should consider increasing funds towards reproductive, maternal and child health for the country to make meaningful progress in promoting the health wellbeing of women, adolescents and children.
