The injustices, prejudice and discrimination on a global level in relation to the IAAF regulations and the CAS findings on the challenge by Caster Semenya.

The South African Medical Association (SAMA), the SA National Bioethics Committee(NBC) (UNESCO) and  the Steve Biko Centre for Bioethics (SCBC) are hosting an Indaba on the injustices, prejudice and discrimination on a global level in relation to the IAAF regulations, the CAS findings on the challenge by Caster Semenya and the latest rebuttal from the IAAF of the WMA call to physicians not to implement the Federation's regulations. One of the possible outcomes could be a call to a relevant body to commission an independent review of the studies that the IAAF based its regulations on. The body could be determined at the Indaba.

Delegates attending the Indaba include country level stakeholders, activists, health care practitioners and civil society.
