Women Sterilised Without Consent

Lesotho Chapter of Women and Law conducts study to determine whether HIV-positive women are being sterilised without their consent in public hospitals

The Lesotho Chapter of Women and Law - Southern Africa is conducting a study to determine the truth behind reports that HIV-positive women are being sterilised without their consent in public hospitals.

Various HIV positive women claim that they have had their wombs removed, or fallopian tubes tied, without the consultation after their babies were delivered by caesarean section.

The Ministry of Health says it is not aware of the situation, and has called on the women to come forward with information.
