Question for written answer E-005237/2012
to the Commission
Rule 117
Konrad Szymański (ECR) and Martin Kastler (PPE)

 Subject: Funds from the EU budget for forced sterilisation in Rwanda
 Answer in writing 

In 2009, a draft law in Rwanda included provisions for compulsory HIV/AIDS testing and targets for the compulsory sterilisation of people with intellectual disabilities. In February 2011, the Rwandan Government announced a three-year plan to provide for 700 000 vasectomies in order to curb population growth and the spread of HIV. The EU budget contains specific provisions prohibiting and combating forced sterilisation. In 2010, the Commission províded the Rwandan Ministry of Health with funding under the Seventh Framework Programme for the project led by TRAC Plus, which is a centre for treatment and research on epidemic infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections.

Is the TRAC Plus programme involved in the compulsory sterilisation of people with intellectual disabilities?
If so, is EU funding helping TRAC Plus achieve its sterilisation targets?
Is TRAC Plus contributing in any way to the government’s three-year plan to provide for 700 000 vasectomies with a view to curbing population growth?
If so, is EU funding helping TRAC Plus achieve its sterilisation targets?
