    HRLN Impact

    HRLN Manipur has been recognised as the main organisation in the state, which provides free legal aid to victims of army/police atrocities, torture, disappearances, rape and violence on civilians.

    With active initiation of HRLN (Manipur), the High Court of Manipur has so far awarded compensation of Rs. 5,00,000/- (Rupees five lakhs) to more than 15 families, specifically killing in fake encounter by the security forces

    Recently HRLN (Manipur) managed to secure a favourable direction from the High Court of Manipur in securing complete elimination out-of-pocket expenses for both pregnant women and sick neonates. Earlier State Government had put a cap on the entitlements under JSSK and a megre amount of reimbursement were made after the delivery of the child in government hospitals. After HRLN’s (Manipur) intervention, the High Court has quashed the notification for putting a cap to the entitlement under JSSK, an absolute care on the pregnant women and sick neonates.

    HRLN (Manipur) unit has also organised various workshops including Judicial Colloquium on Reproductive and Health Rights. HRLN (Manipur) has approached the High Court of Manipur for having proper health care facilities at District Hospitals, community health Centres, Primary Health Centres and Primary Health Sub-Centres in the State. At the same time HRLN (Manipur) knocked the door of the law court as and when the entitlements were not provided under various schemes relating to reproductive health.
