Torture Happens Here
Vlad is suffering from incurable brain cancer. Despite his chronic pain, doctors in Ukraine are only allowed to prescribe 50 mg of pain medicine. In another country, doctors would typically prescribe more than 2,000 mg for a patient like Vlad.
Marginalized women are often sterilized without their consent worldwide. Medical staff deem these women unworthy of being mothers because of their health condition, ethnicity, or income.
In many countries, governments forcibly detain people as a form of “treatment” for medical conditions such as drug addiction, mental disability, or tuberculosis.
Marginalized people worldwide encounter abuse and torture in the name of health care and treatment. The Campaign to Stop Torture in Health Care is helping them stand up to demand their human rights.
