Poland: Involvement in US-led rendition and secret detention programmes and women’s access to sexual and reproductive rights: Amnesty International submission to the UN Universal Periodic Review, May-June 2012

, Index number: EUR 37/002/2011

In this submission, Amnesty International comments on the implementation of recommendations made to Poland during its previous UPR in 2008, including recommendations on adopting anti-discrimination legislation, addressing overcrowding in prisons, improving prison conditions, and publishing information on Poland’s involvement in secret detention. While the Polish Constitution guarantees the right of all persons to health and to equal access to health without discrimination, restrictive laws and policies on abortion remain in force, denying women and girls their right to the highest attainable standard of health.
