The state as a catalyst for violence against women
The pandemic of violence against women continues unabated in Latin America and the Caribbean. In this report, Amnesty International documents examples in eight countries that highlight patterns of violence against women, including torture or other ill-treatment, in the areas of sexual and reproductive health. These patterns are repeated throughout the region and include ill-treatment and the denial of health services, breaches of patient confidentiality, the imposition of certain moral or religious precepts on patients and the abuse of conscientious objection.
