Back No. 117/2015 Transgender-Europe and ILGA-Europe v. Czech Republic
The complaint registered on 30 March 2015, relates to Article 11 (the right to protection of health), alone or in conjunction with the non-discrimination principle stated in the Preamble of the 1961 Charter. The complainant organisations, Transgender Europe and ILGA-Europe, allege that, in the Czech Republic, the legal requirement of sterilization imposed on trans people wishing to change their personal documents so that they reflect their gender identity, is in breach of the above mentioned provisions of the 1961 Charter.
The European Committee of Social Rights declared the complaint admissible on 9 September 2015.
