This will be her first visit to Bangladesh

United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Executive Director Dr Natalia Kanem, who is also an under-secretary-general at the UN, is set to arrive in Dhaka on Monday on a four-day visit.

During her first visit to Bangladesh, she will engage in conversations on Bangladesh's current maternal health, family planning, adolescent and youth, gender equality and population issues, according to a press release issued on Sunday by the UNFPA office in Dhaka.

Kanem became the UNFPA chief in October 2017 with the rank of the UN under-secretary-general.

During her visit, she will meet Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury, Health Minister Mohammad Nasim and Foreign Affairs Minister AH Mahmood Ali, said the release.

She will also have consultative meetings with UN agencies, development partners, civil society and media to share her views on progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals and the upcoming 25th year of the International Conference on Population and Development.

She will also visit the Rohingya refugee camps in Cox's Bazar and meet with Rohingya women and girls at UNFPA-supported reproductive health clinics and Women Friendly Spaces, according to the release.
