The Situation of Human Rights Defenders of Lyme and Relapsing Fever Borreliosis: Edition One: The Ad Hoc Committee for Health Equity in ICD11 Borreliosis Codes


Borreliosis is a disease caused by infection by bacteria named Borrelia. All known forms of borreliosis are zoonotic and transmitted to humans through exposure to vector organisms. The World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized Lyme borreliosis as a multi-region ‘disease of consequence’ for decades. Nevertheless, across the globe, State response to one of the most prevalent and rapidly spreading infectious diseases of our time is the cause of unnecessary suffering. This poor healthcare response is not happening because better methods of diagnosis and treatment do not exist —in fact they do. It is happening because of corruption, conflicts of interest and unethical practices that are ignored or even promoted by State Actors, their agents and vested business interests. This report will show how conflicts of interest, market competition, State Actor collusion with private sector profiteers and other nonmedical and non-science-based dynamics are destroying the capacity to provide care for estimated millions living with Lyme and relapsing fever borreliosis infections and details how the current situation of these human rights defenders and this patient group shows violations of articles found in eleven international and/or regional human rights treatises and conventions. The results are many medical practitioners and scientists devoted to under-standing this illness and treating these patients are routinely defamed, their freedoms to associate and speak restricted, and they are threatened with the loss of their livelihoods. Every time a human rights defender for Lyme and relapsing fever borreliosis patients is attacked and removed, an estimated 10,000 or more borreliosis patients will lose access to proper diagnosis and medical care that meets internationally accepted standards. The 2018 Report ‘The Situation of the Human Rights Defenders of Lyme and Relapsing Fever Borreliosis Patients’ was submitted to Special Rapporteur Michel Forst and to Special Rapporteur Dr. Dainius Puras of the United Nations in March 2018. This resulted in the report being entered into UN record and a meeting between United Nations Human Rights Council Special Rapporteur Forst and medical professionals, scientists, human rights experts and advocates on June 5, 2018 in Geneva, Switzerland.

Following completion of his medical training and a one-year stint as attending physician on Howard Champion's Surgical Critical Care Service and MedStar Unit at Washington Hospital Center in the District of Columbia, Kenneth Liegner, M.D. returned to Westchester County, home of his Alma Mater, New York Medical College, to start a private practice. Unwittingly, he had 'plunked himself down' in the heart of a burgeoning epidemic of Lyme disease. His patients confronted him with puzzling syndromes that defied 'tidy' formulations of the illness and thrust him in to a Maelstrom of medical controversy.
