Herero Women in Namibia

The Namibia Women’s Health Network (NWHN) is an organization doing the work of advocating for the health and human rights of women in Namibia.

According to cnn.com,

“A study from the International Community of Women Living with HIV/AIDS and the Namibia Women’s Health Network unearthed 40 cases in three of the country’s regions [where women were being sterilized without their knowledge because they were HIV positive].

AIDS activist Jenny Gatsi-Mallet, who helped conduct the research, said doctors working for the state have told her they were just following guidelines.

“They are saying that these guidelines came into being when AIDS first came into the country, and I think that was in 2001, and it was a directive that says any woman who tests positive for HIV should be sterilized straight away,” Gatsi-Mallet said.”

Organizations such as NWHN are necessary, in Namibia, to prevent women’s rights being abused because they are HIV  positive or because of other reasons.

Before independence, Namibia was a German colony and even experienced genocide at the hands of German forces.

In July 2012, a judge decided on a ruling that said that  that three HIV-positive women in Namibia were sterilized without neither their knowledge nor their consent.

The Republic of Namibia is a country in southern Africa. The country’s western border is the Atlantic Ocean. Its neighboring countries are Angola and Zambia to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south and east.

  1. It would be nice if you went to a European country and was able to sterilize some women. Men often make rules for women but I have never heard of woman ever making rules for these men.

  2. The same thing is happening in ISRAEL, African Jews from Ethiopia that were migrated to that country in the 80s by the Israeli Government are being sterilized by the Israeli government mainly because the Government does not want a large black population in Israel.
    You are right Elaine Riddick Plan Parent is all over the world mainly in poor countries whose leaders do not know the intention of the Plan Parent wood.
    Plan parent wood is a population reductions organization just like HIV AIDS is. HIV AIDS is not a natural disease; it is a disease that was manufactured in scientific labs in America as a means to reduce the population growth of poor population around the world (Depopulation). This is a form of biological warfare.
    They have a fake scientist called DR Robert Gallo (Jewish) that goes around the world that gives fake origin of the AIDS virus. By saying that the virus originated from Africa through monkeys and the whole world believes the lies from him.
    WHO (World Health Organization is also part of these games. They are all in the business of population growth reduction.
    One reason that some communities around the world refusing vaccinations from WHO is that they do not trust WHO any longer especially in Muslim countries.
