This right should be read against and harmonized against the right to non discrimination, right to integrity, right to consent / health.

PROVISIONS FOR NEW LAW


  • Abuse and exploitation as defined in other acts such as DVA, sexual harassment act, SCST atrocities Act, etc. can be considered. CrPC provisions can be considered. UN Convention against torture for definition of torture. Found in UNCRPD preamble.

  • The new Act must consider that medical environments can be abusive and exploitative. Medical ethics references must be made to prevent the use of inhuman, degrading and torturous practices. There must be active dialogue with MOHFW to take up this aspect of best practices seriously. Such concerns must also reflect in the Health and Rehab articles of this new Act.

  • Some focus on the higher risks of women, children (both boys and girls), elderly and multiply vulnerable PWDs to abuse.
