Protecting the rights of key HIV- affected women and girls in health care settings: A legal scan Regional report
PDF File Size: 9.47 MB | Download   
There is emerging recognition that there are instances where health care institutions are sites of discrimination, violence, and abuse towards individuals who come seeking health care services, with health care providers withholding care or performing treatment that intentionally or negligently inflicts pain and suffering. Rights violations that key HIV-affected women and girls (KAWG) face in health care settings may include forced and coerced sterilization, forced and coerced abortions, denial of access to sexual and
reproductive health services, and being subjected to discrimination and degrading treatment. In a report submitted to the twenty-second session of the Human Rights Council (February 2013), the Special Rapporteur on Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, Juan Mendez, noted that some of these practices not only involve violations of human rights such as the right to health, the right to non-discrimination on prohibited grounds, and the right to found a family, but they may constitute torture and inhuman or degrading treatment. Specifically, the Special Rapporteur’s report found evidence of significant levels of rights violations among KAWG in health care settings in each country. Despite the many interventions by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and government institutions regarding the practices of health care workers, stigma and discrimination continue in many hospitals and health care centres across South Asia.
