Forced sterilisation in Africa remains a major challenge
Forced sterilisation is a practice that continues in Africa, although under-reported. However, it is an intrusion upon one’s bodily auto as it deprives a woman of any rights including the right to bodily autonomy. It is a clear violation of human rights and medical ethics and it has been declared a violation of a range of rights which includes interlia the right to privacy, dignity, health, freedom and security of a person.
