TAKE ACTION : Send a letter to Namibia’s Health Minister

Scores of HIV positive women in Namibia were forcibly sterilized. A number of them have stepped forward in to sue the government for violating their fundamental rights. The hearings have sparked mass mobilizations and public demonstrations by HIV and human rights activists. Despite this, the Namibian Government has thus far refused to take the steps needed to end this practice. You can send a message to the Namibia’s Health Minister demanding that the government stop sterilizing HIV-positive women without their consent.

Send a letter to Namibia’s Health Minister demanding an end to the forced and coerced sterilization of women living with HIV.
