Health consequences of pre-trial detention in Zambian prisons.

Abstract

High rates of pre-trial detention and extreme prison overcrowding are closely linked to poor health--and particularly to HIV and tuberculosis transmission and treatment--in prisons in sub-Saharan Africa. In this article, based on a presentation made at an AIDS 2010 satellite, Katherine Todrys describes the intersection of pre-trial detention and health in Zambian prisons.
