health care in prisons

In Yei, in southern Sudan, Malteser International has launched training for prison inmates on the prevention of diseases such as HIV/AIDS, TB, leprosy and sleeping sickness. The Order of Malta’s relief corps started these courses in July, involving some 100 prisoners and staff.

The project is run in cooperation with local authorities and includes the treatment of these and other diseases; it is planned to visit other prisons with the involvement of hospitals.
