The Oviedo Convention, formally known as the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Dignity of the Human Being with regard to the Application of Biology and Medicine, is the only international legally-binding instrument on the protection of human rights and dignity in the biomedical field. In this regard, State parties have an obligation not to deprive persons with disabilities of their right to autonomy, nor to permit substitute decision-makers to provide consent on their behalf.
Coercive treatment is likewise in contradiction to the CRPD as it infringes over their right to accept or refuse medical treatment.
The Committee stresses that the draft Additional Protocol would allow non-consensual, forced health care and treatment for persons with disabilities, which would evidently deprive them of their right to make and pursue their own decisions. Photo by rawpixel on Unsplash.
