Combating discrimination in the hospital

Anastasia sought medical help from a venereologist. During the examination and conversation, the girl said that she was engaged in commercial sex. As soon as the doctor heard this, she began verbally abusing the client and condemning her lifestyle, calling it shameful. Moreover, the doctor accused the client of spreading infections and infecting men.

Anastasia felt oppressed and deprived of dignity. Turning to the REActor, the girl received advice on combating discrimination and rights violations. The documentator directly supported the client and provided the necessary psychological assistance. Anastasia was later referred to a friendly doctor for further treatment.
