View publication PDF

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).
