Disharmonised access to their rights and allowances has long been a source of discrimination and violation of basic human rights of the newly delivered mothers in BiH. In Bosnia and Herzegovina there is no law that would indiscriminately regulate this issue, given that social protection of family and children falls under respective jurisdiction of the entities and the Brcko District. According to the current legislative framework, we have 12 different approaches to regulation of the rights of the newly delivered mothers in BiH. Situation is especially complex in the Federation of BiH where the jurisdiction is shared by the entity and the cantons in such a way that the entity is responsible for adoption of the legislative framework, while the cantons are responsible for implementation of this legislation and payments of the indemnities to new mothers.
