Kaliati said men should not turn wives into “baby-making machines” but rather do family planning.

She was speaking on Saturday in Salima when Malawi joined the rest of the international community in commemorating World Population Day under this year’s theme: Vulnerable Populations in Emergencies.

She also assured that Malawi government will redouble its efforts to make sure women, girls and youths’ rights are protected in emergencies.

“This administration will ensure that human rights of the vulnerable populations are respected, protected and fulfilled during emergencies,” she said.

The function was commemorated under the theme “Vulnerable Populations in Emergencies”.

United Nations Population Fund Agency (UNFPA) Representative, Violet Kakyoma said that there is need for Malawi to highlight special needs of women and adolescent girls who become more vulnerable during humanitarian disasters.

“This group faces abuse, sexual exploitation, violence and forced marriages during natural disasters. As an agency, we empower and safeguard the well-being of them and address their concerns and specific needs,” she said.

She added that they work closely with government on disaster preparedness to ensure that reproductive health is integrated into emergency responses.

So far, she said, the agency has deployed hygiene kits, obstetric and contraceptive supplies, trained personnel and other support to vulnerable populations.

Eyewitness I will assume your brain is backwards hence your backward thinking. If a woman stays at home to look after children u think that’s not a job? Men are able to go to work coz they knows are lest assured that the children are being taken care of indirectly the woman also contributes to the finances by saving childcare money etc. Another thing is that, not all women prefers staying at home. Some men are insecure and suffers with inferiority complex as the result, they prefer their wives to be staying @home……blablabla
