News Story on the Forced Sterilization of Women Living with HIV
Posted by Mindy Roseman
Yesterday we came across this CNN story on the forced sterilization of HIV-positive women in Namibia. It’s a strong piece, and it features one of our partners, Jennifer Gatsi-Mallet, and the critical work of the Namibian Women’s Health Network (NWHN) and the International Council of Women Living with HIV and AIDS.
Our own report on the violations of sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV in Namibia—undertaken by students in the International Human Rights Clinic, with NWHN and the support of Aziza Ahmed, now at Northeastern Law School—will be published this fall.
