    HIV-positive women in Chile are coming forward to say they were sterilised against their will after giving birth.

    A new report says legal loopholes and biased doctors are to blame.

    Women living with HIV in Chile, maintain that the government must take concrete actions to stop the abuse and humanise the treatment.

    These women hope that by speaking out they'll spark a wider national conversation and change the general public's attitudes.
