The 36th CEDAW Session convened from 7th August to 25th August 2006. This time round, the CEDAW experts reviewed 15 country reports, almost twice the usual eight reports reviewed per session.

The Eighth Session of the Working Group on Communications under the Optional Protocol, of which Dr. Tan is a member, convened earlier from 2nd to 4th August 2006. Dr. Tan was in charge of Communication No. 4/2004, Andrea Szijjarto v. Hungary.

At a plenary session, the CEDAW Committee as a whole adopted a final decision on Communication 4/2004. The Committee found that the sterilisation surgery on the author, Andrea Szijjarto, was performed by state hospital doctors without her full and informed consent and must be considered to have permanently deprived her of her reproductive capacity. The Committee found violations of Articles 10(h), 12 and 16(1)(e) of the CEDAW Convention.
