EU Heads of Mission have noted the recent report by the Malawi Human Rights Commission, and in particular the serious allegations of sexual violence against members of the Malawi Police Service.

The Heads of Mission reiterate the EU’s strong partnership with the Government and other stakeholders to end sexual and gender based violence, notably through the Spotlight partnership between the European Union and the United Nations.
