The International Corrections and Prisons Association, in collaboration with the Center for Promoting Lifelong Learning (CPIP) and National Administration of Penitentiaries – Romania, is delighted to invite you to a two-day training workshop on Standards in Prison Health. The training will take place from 30 April to 1 May, 2019, in Timisoara, Romania.
International law recognizes the right of everyone, including people deprived of their liberty, to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health. However, in practice, many prisoners receive healthcare of a far inferior standard to that available outside in the community, if they receive treatment at all.
Prisoners with existing healthcare conditions may have their health needs ignored or neglected, and others may develop health problems whilst in prison, thanks to unhealthy and unhygienic prison conditions and poor control of infectious diseases.
Health protection in prisons is a serious public health issue, which states ignore at their peril, as the vast majority of people in prison will return to the community at the end of their sentence.
This training is designed for prison staff officials.
Registration is now closed.
