Access to Health

What we do

Promoting the health and physical wellbeing of women, men and children in prisons through increased access to essential health services.

How we do it

Health education and activities: Educating prisoners and prison staff on key health issues. This includes the introduction of basic activities that promote wellbeing through healthy bodies and minds – giving people the chance to put learned lessons into practise.

Clinical services and support: Providing enhanced medical training to prison staff so that they can deliver basic services and meet the health needs of those under their care (this includes the provision of nutritional support and HIV/AIDS programmes).

Building health infrastructure: From biogas toilets and boreholes to water tanks and refurbished health clinics we are committed to ensuring that local prison environments have the facilities that are conducive to good health and the resources to support patients in need.
