UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

By on .

Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein is the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

He has just spoken about intersex human rights abuses in his inaugural address to the 30th Human Right Council in Geneva.  OII-UK urges the UK government and other agencies to address the continuing abuse of intersex human rights, and acknowledge that it is long overdue that these abuses were halted, and intersex people given legal protections that ensure their rights of personal autonomy and bodily integrity.
