42nd Cycle Universal Periodic Review
Statement by Portugal
Speaking time – 1’45’’
Portugal welcomes the delegation of Peru and wishes it a successful review.
Portugal commends Peru for ratifying the ILO’s Domestic Workers Convention and for implementing our previous recommendation to reinforce age verification procedures for the recruitment into the armed forces.
Portugal recommends that Peru:
- ratifies the Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
- strengthens the capacity of its health system to ensure the human right to health to all, including sexual and reproductive health services, and provides human rights training to health personnel to prevent and address stigma and discrimination in health services.
