ICJ submits amicus curiae brief in the case of Manuela v. El Salvador

The ICJ recently submitted an amicus curiae brief to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in the case of Manuela v. El Salvador.

The ICJ’s written submissions to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights focused on the right to respect for and protection of information about one’s health under both the Convention on Human Rights and Biomedicine and the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights. In particular, the ICJ observed that the right to private life guarantees respect for and protection of information about one’s health, such as personal and medical data, including relating to an abortion, to one’s sexual life and references to one’s health treatment.
