ICW project addressing coerced sterilisation in the news

In 2008 ICW Namibia and the Namibian Women's Health Network’s embarked on a fact-finding mission in Namibia to gather data and take steps to demand justice from those individuals and entities that had violated the sexual and reproductive rights of HIV positive women by forcing them or coercing them to be sterilised.  These fundamental rights include the rights of HIV positive women to have a safe, healthy, and fulfilling sex life and to determine whether and when to have children.  More information about the project.

The Project has lead to considerable coverage by a range of organizations, journals, institutions and individuals - check out the links below.
