Euthanasia in Belgium: 2004 and 2005.

The Report of the Federal Control and Evaluation Commission Covering the Years 2004 and 2005.

Belgium legalised voluntary euthanasia in 2002 for persons who are legally competent and “in a medically futile condition of constant and unbearable physical or mental suffering that cannot be alleviated, resulting from a serious and incurable disorder caused by illness or accident”. The 2002 Act created a Federal Control and Evaluation Commission (FCEC) to report biannually on the operation of the law.

Here we provide the French-language version of the FCEC report for Years 2004-05 (an English translation is not available).
