Namibia: Submission to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights: 74th Pre-sessional Working Group, 4-8 March 2024

Amnesty International submits this document to the UN Committee on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights in advance of the adoption of the List of Issues for Namibia in March 2024. It highlights the organization’s concerns regarding the right to health, specifically focusing on the alarming prevalence of tuberculosis (TB) within the Indigenous San populations in Namibia. This submission should not be seen as an exhaustive account of Amnesty International’s concerns, but rather as an urgent call to address the critical human rights challenges faced by the San communities in Namibia concerning their right to health.
