Petition Presented to Ministry

The petition was handed over yesterday to the Namibian Ministry of Health and Social Services following a protest in solidarity with the women who are currently in court on 01 June 2010.

In total, more than 1,100 people signed the petition calling for an immediate end to the sterilisation of HIV positive women without their informed consent.
