In the case O.G. and Others v. Greece the Court held that there had been two violations: right to respect for private life with regard to two applicants, on account of the blood tests they had been required to undertake; and right to respect for private life with regard to four applicants, on account of the publication of data concerning them.

The case concerned the publication, by decision of the domestic authorities, of medical data concerning women who had been diagnosed as HIV-positive, and media coverage of them. It also concerned the circumstances in which they were required to undergo a blood test.

The Court considered that the blood samples imposed on two applicants and the publication of the four applicants’ data had amounted to an interference with their private life.
