Forcible Sterilisation In Uzbekistan

Natalia Antelava reports on Uzbekistan where women have become the new target of one of the most repressive regimes on earth.

She uncovers evidence that women are being sterilised, often without their knowledge, in an effort by the government to control the population.

The programme speaks to victims and doctors and highlights the fear and paranoia that have made this such a difficult story to tell.

Women have fled the country in order to escape the practise.

Only a few brave Uzbeks have been willing to speak, often telling horrific stories the government don't want told.
