Concluding Observations, CEDAW/C/NOR/CO/8, 23 March 2012: Norway

33. While noting the elaboration of a bill “prohibiting discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity”, which will be presented to the Parliament in 2013, and the establishment of the national Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Knowledge Centre in 2011, the Committee is concerned at the discrimination in the State party against lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex women in the provision of health-care services.

34. The Committee urges the State party to:

  1. Accelerate adoption of the relevant legislation mentioned above ensuring non-discrimination in the health care system; and
  2. Provide appropriate training to health-service providers, in order to avoid abuse and mistreatment of these women.
