CEE Bulletin on Sexual and Reproductive Rights No 8 (42) 2006

New Page 2
     CEE Bulletin on Sexual and  Reproductive Rights  No 8 (42) 2006 
 
 
Sexual and reproductive health and  rights constitute fundamental human rights, 

form a vital aspect of the women’s  empowerment

 and are key to the achievement of  gender equality. 

                 

       

       

      BURNING ISSUE        

      
Youth’s Voice - young people talk about their sexual and        reproductive health and rights. ASTRA Youth, a        network of Youth sexual and reproductive health and rights advocates in        the CEE and Balkan regions, prepared a report on the status of RSH&R        of young people. The report was launched during the International        Conference organized by ASTRA and the Federation for Women and Family        Planning. The meeting took place in Warsaw and focused on youth sexuality        and sexuality education in the context of HIV/AIDS prevention. The        countries covered by the report include Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia,        Cyprus, Georgia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Poland, Serbia and Montenegro, and        Slovakia. The report is based on the surveys during which the respondents        in these countries had been asked about their knowledge and practices on        S&R rights, the role of parents, church and school in sex education        and HIV/AIDS prevention. Apart from the statistics, each country report        presents the information on the status of sexual education in school        curricula. The countries overwhelmingly reported a severe lack of such        programs in schools. Only 24% of all respondents answered that their        school has sexual education lessons. 71.2% answered “no” to this question.        This is reflected by the survey statistics concerning young people’s        knowledge of sexuality issues. In Lithuania 20,8% of respondents think        that HIV infection can be transmitted by mosquitoes and 43.4% of them        believe that contraceptive pill protects against both: pregnancy and STIs,        including HIV; 52% of Polish respondents and 73.6% of Lithuanian did not        know that Chlamydia is an infection transmitted sexually; in Macedonia 39%        of boys think that using two condoms will make sex safer; 61.2% of        Georgian respondents and 38.8% of all participants do not know that it is        possible for a women to become pregnant during menstruation. The lack of        knowledge and reproductive health services results in risky sexual        behaviors and high numbers of teenage pregnancies. For example in        Lithuania and Armenia the birth rate for girls under the age of 20 is        respectively 22 and 50 births per 1,000 compared to 5 births per 1,000        girls in the Netherlands and 6 per 1,000 in Sweden. Lack of knowledge        contributes to the fact that the HIV/AIDS pandemic is growing rapidly in        CEE region among young people, especially among girls. According to        Giedrius Likatavicius from EuroHIV over 70% of HIV infections newly        diagnosed in 2005 in Eatsren Europe is among young females aged        15-20.

      The presentation        of the report received broad media coverage. The information on its        contents could be found in the main Polish newspapers, radio programs and        main web portals.

      Czech Republic: Reporting to CEDAW.        In the concluding comments addressed        to the Czech Republic after its third periodic report to CEDAW, the        Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women expressed its        concern about the 2005 report of the Czech Ombudsman regarding involuntary        or coercive sterilization of Roma women and the lack of government urgent        action to implement its recommendations. CEDAW called for adopting without        delay the legislative measures with regard to sterilization, including the        clear definition of informed consent. It also urges the government to        implement measures of compensation to victims of involuntary or coercive        sterilization and to provide redress to Roma women victims as well as to        take actions to prevent such practices in the        future.

      Georgia: CEDAW on women’s health.        The Committee on the Elimination of        Discrimination against Women considered during its 56th session the second        and third combined report of Georgia. The Committee recommended the        Georgian government inter alia that a broad framework for health services        in line with its General Recommendation on women and health be put in        place. The Committee requested the government of Georgia to include in the        next report such information on women’s health as contraceptive prevalence        rate, abortion rate and access to family planning services. It also        requested information on marriages involving girls under 18.        
http://www.un.org/womenwatch/daw/cedaw/36sess.htm        

Georgia:        Law on domestic violence. The Georgian new        law on domestic violence, passed by the parliament in May, includes        provisions which may prove to be an important tool to combat domestic        violence. The law recognizes crimes committed within the family as crimes,        not as disturbances. The law allows police to issue 24 hour restraining        orders on the scene of the incidents. The victims are also provided with        the right to appeal to administrative courts for protective orders that        can last up to three months. Although both orders prohibit the abuser from        contacting the victim they are not criminal sanctions. This may prove        effective to defend the victims who often hesitate to criminalize the        case. However, not all provisions of the new law will be implemented in        nearest future. For example the funding for establishing shelters for        victims of domestic violence has been delayed for        2008.

Republic of Moldova: Increased focus on reproductive health        needed. During its 36th session the Committee on the        Elimination of Discrimination against Women considered the combined second        and third report of Moldova. In its concluding comments CEDAW recommended        that the government increase efforts to improve women’s reproductive        health. The Committee called in particular to increase the availability,        accessibility and use of modern contraception in order to eliminate using        abortion as a birth control method. The Committee also urged the State to        ensure women’s access to safe abortion, in accordance with the        legislation. It also encouraged the government to provide systematic sex        education in schools including vocational        training.

      Poland: Attempts to further restrict anti-abortion        law. The Polish Vice Prime Minister calls        for the constitutional protection of unborn life. The initiative is a real        threat of further restrictions to Polish anti-abortion law. The present        law is already restrictive and proves to be even stricter in practice than        on paper. Although it allows to terminate the pregnancy in certain        circumstances, women entitled to abortion are almost always denied access        to it. The initiative undertaken by Roman Giertych, the vice prime        minister and the leader of ultra-conservative League of Polish Families        (LPR) is a part of this party’s strategy to fully delegalize abortion. The        LPR has already raised the issue of changing the law and banning abortion        in cases which are now legal but their call proved unpopular in the        society. The project to change the article 38 of the constitution is the        party’s way to avoid the public discussion. The article 38 states that        “The Republic of Poland shall ensure the legal protection of the life of        every human being”. The LPR’s proposal is to add the phrase “from the        moment of conception” at the end of the sentence. The changing of the        constitution will deprive women of national legal instruments to protect        their life and health, to terminate the pregnancy resulting from rape or        other crime or when the fetus is seriously deformed. Marek Jurek, the        speaker of Sejm (lower chamber of the Polish Parliament), has already        declared that the project will be placed on Sejm’s agenda as soon as        possible according to the Polish legal procedures. The Polish Federation        for Women and Family Planning is collecting signatures against the LPR’s        initiative in Poland and internationally. Until now we collected almost        200 international supporters including Adrienne Germain, International        Women’s Health Coalition, Frances Kissling, Catholics for a Free Choice,        and Ana Gomes, member of the European Parliament. If you would like        to support the protest against total ban abortion in Poland, please sign        up the Open Letter: http://www.federa.org.pl/signatures

      Romania: According to        information revealed by the police, the Romanian authorities are planning to        legalize prostitution in order to help fight trafficking        in women and sex slavery. According to the present law prostitution is a        crime and can be punished by fines or three years in prison. However, sex        workers mostly face fines which they rarely pay since most of them do not        have legal income. The project to liberalize the law has the support of        women’s rights groups and the Ministry of Health. It is opposed by the        conservative Orthodox Church.

             Science: HIV prevention pill.        Viread, the drug already used to        treat AIDS, proved to be safe while used for HIV prevention. Although the        study on animals suggest that the drug can prevent infection, more        research has to be done in order to prove that it is also true when        applied to people. The drug was tested on HIV negative women in Africa at        high risk of infection within the study conducted by Family Health        International. The women were randomly divided into two groups, one of        which was given placebo. Women in both groups were given condoms and        provided with counseling on prevention. Some researchers feared that there        might be more infections than should be expected among women receiving        placebo because they could feel protected against the virus. The concerns        proved wrong – the number of infections were half of what had been        expected. This could be the result of the counseling (using condoms and        cutting the number of sex partners). The result of the study was revealed        during the International AIDS Conference in        Toronto.

      Science:        Infant death risk and voluntary C-sections. According to a        study published in the journal Birth: Issues in Perinatal Care infant and        neonatal mortality rates are higher with voluntary Caesarean sections than        vaginal birth. The researchers, who examined the data on live births and        infant deaths in the US during the years 1998-2001, aimed at estimating        the risk of death for neonates and infants related to C-section performed        without medical indications. The study showed that the mortality rate was        1,77 per 1,000 infants delivered via voluntary C-section. According to the        data the rate for 1,000 infants delivered vaginally was 0.62. The        researchers believe that one of the reasons for the increased risk in case        of birth by C-section may be related to hormones promoting lung        functioning that are being released during vaginal        delivery.

Personal        impressions of XVI International AIDS Conference Youth        participant: "As a happy scholarship winner I        attended the XVI International AIDS Conference, held on August 13-18 in        Toronto, Canada. I was also invited by the Toronto Youth Force to        participate in the Youth Pre-Conference, which gathered over 200 young        people from around the globe.

      The        Pre-Conference was an energetic event, which included lectures on main        issues in the field, such as AIDS policy, prevention of mother-to-child        transmission, and research methods, as well as workshops on youth-adult        partnerships, media and communications and peer        education.

      The main        conference brought together more than 20,000 delegates. What I found very        positive was that the programme included many meetings on women’s issues,        placing them on the frontline of HIV/AIDS response. Global leaders, such        as Bill Clinton and Bill Gates spoke about the importance of research on        microbicides. Once introduced, these products would become a major tool in        preventing the spread of the AIDS pandemic among women. “A woman should        never need her partner's permission to save her own life,” said Gates,        whose foundation has recently donated 500 mln USD to the Global Fund to        Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria. 

      The discussion        on the role of media in the fight against AIDS opened my eyes to new        opportunities of spreading basic knowledge through incorporating        information on different aspects of the disease into programme formats,        such as TV series or competitions. It also made me realize than the media        in Poland are way behind their counterparts in western Europe or North        America in this respect.

      The best        workshop of the conference I participated in was definitely that organized        by the liberal catholic organization from the US – Catholics for Free        Choice. They gave us some great tips on how to have public discussions        with religious conservatives opposing the idea of using condoms for        protection against HIV. The media tend to focus on radical and populist        views and to prevent that, we need to make every effort possible to lead,        not follow the debate and merely respond to questions and accusations. We        should focus on our central message, not let ourselves be disturbed by        personal attacks and – remember - never forget to make the final strong        point in the debate!"
