Comenius University Regional Academy – Discussing Women’s Rights in Childbirth.

The representatives of the Slovak Public Defender of Rights gave a lecture at the Faculty of Arts of Comenius University in Bratislava as part of the cooperation within the ENLIGHT Regional Academy. The presented research showcased violation of women's rights in the provision of health care during childbirth. Using the CU Regional Academy as a bridge between the real-life challenges and educational environment, the idea was to raise awareness among the students as to the importance of respect for bodily and mental integrity of women during labor. Sensitization of this topic in the field of education simultaneously addresses two flagship areas of ENLIGHT – Health and well-being and Equity. That same research will also be examined during the Summer School “Innovation Game” at Uppsala University in August.

The full research is available here.
