Turning the Tide: Not Without Prisons!

Each year over 30 million men and women spend time in prisons and other closed settings, of whom over one-third are pre-trial detainees. Virtually all of them will return to their community, many within a few months to a year.
Globally, the prevalence of HIV, sexually transmitted infections, hepatitis B, C and tuberculosis in prison populations is 2 to 10 times and up to fifty times higher than in the general population. HIV rates are particularly high among women in detention. Risks affect prisoners, those working in prisons, their family and the entire community. For these reasons, it is essential to provide HIV interventions in these settings, both for prisoners and for those employed by prison authorities.
