Greek Health Minister Sanctions Forced HIV Tests

In Europe, Health on 02/07/2013 at 7:50 pm

Greece’s far-right health minister has re-introduced forced HIV tests.

A report on the Pink News website states that HIV campaigners are “appalled” by the decision. The law had previously been used to round up and forcibly test hundreds of women, some of whom had their details published in the press when they were found to be HIV+.

Economic crisis in Greece is leading to a social and health crisis as the right victimise the most vulnerable.

Queers against the Cuts expresses our solidarity with everyone affected by this decision: we will produce a longer statement shortly.
