Meeting of women victims of forced sterilization
17 March 2018
On 16 and 16 March women from Iquitos, Pucallpa, Cajamarca, Piura, Cusco, Ayacucho, Huancavelica, Junín, Huánuco and Lima arrived in the capital for an event organized by GREF (Group that Follows the Process for Reparations for Forced Sterilizations). On this second occasion they came together to discuss the process of reparation and to share their experiences. Although a reparation fund was set up in November 2015 there has so far been little progress, achieving no more than a partial register of victims.
