Women Shun Clinic Over HIV Tests

Pregnant women speaks out about nurses forcing them to undergo testing without their informed consent

Pregnant women have spoken out about nurses forcing them to undergo testing without their informed consent.

According to a new report by Amnesty International, many pregnant women fear going to state antenatal clinics because they believe they will be forced to test for HIV and that their status will not be kept private.

The organisation states that delays in seeking antenatal care are responsible for a quarter of avoidable maternal deaths in South Africa, adding that, “These fears are not unfounded.”
