The Triple Burden
Creator: Justice and Women Charitable Trust
Description: South African rural women speak about the violation of their rights to confidentiality, counselling and consent when tested for HIV/AIDS by some South African clinics when women were pregnant. Further, some women describe how they were treated whilst in labour by hospital staff, with some women being sterilised without consent. Community stigmatisation of people living with HIV/AIDS made it difficult for women to speak to others or gain support to confront and challenge these violations.
