Series Number: 80
Editors’ note: Despite protective laws and international treaties, the abusive practice of involuntary sterilization continues. In this DifferenTakes, HIV advocate Katelin Wilton looks at how discrimination against women living with HIV in Kenya and Namibia makes them targets for unwanted sterilization and “cash for contraception” schemes. The author calls for recognition of this injustice and for supportive and comprehensive reproductive health services for women living with HIV.
