FERNANDEZ-MORENO, Sara Yaneth. The Right to Health of Internally Displaced Population: The Case of Women of Auto 092, Medellin, Antioquia. Rev. Gerenc. Polit. Salud [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.19, pp. 22-38. ISSN 1657-7027.
Medellin is the second largest city in the reception of internally displaced population, product of the armed conflict of the country. Even though sexual violence in this context is a State crime against humanity without limitations of power to prosecute, the country is barely beginning actions to undertake the problem, together with the processes of reparation, restitution and non-repetition, from Differential Treatment and gender-sensitive approaches. It is crucial to approach sexual violence from the actors of the armed conflict through the recognition of health as a fundamental human right, and from the gender-sensitive and socio-sanitary perspectives. However, in the advancement made so far, it can be argued that the essential guaranties of the right that these women have -in their condition of victims- become scarcely administrative, and they have a high risk of being re-victimized, in a process whereby the different governmental instances -including the instances of health care in charge of the attention to this population- do not keep the minimal attention protocols in the particular circumstances of these women.
