UPR 41 – Poland


Statement by Portugal



Portugal welcomes the High level delegation of Poland.

Portugal commends Poland for the Act of 12 March 2022 on Assistance to Citizens of Ukraine, which guarantees Ukrainian refugees access to education and public health systems.

In the spirit of constructive dialogue, Portugal recommends that Poland:

  • intensifies efforts to combat violence against women and girls, namely by implementing the Istanbul Convention of the Council of Europe, and ensures them full access to health services;
  • reinstates the Council for the Prevention of Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance and takes measures to eliminate situations of discrimination faced by Roma communities;
  • ratifies the Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights;

Portugal wishes Poland a successful UPR review.

Thank you.
