Gross overcrowding forces many prisoners to stand to sleep. Lack of space and exercise can cause swelling of feet from insufficient circulation.
"Adequate prisoner health not only controls infectious disease, but also contributes to safe, secure, and humane institutions - part of establishing a society of justice, prosperity and peace."
-- Dr. John May, President, Health through Walls
Health through Walls works with prison authorities in low-resource countries to implement replicable and sustainable systems to develop their capacity to provide incarcerated persons with meaningful health services such as medical screening, treatment, and discharge planning leading to continuity of care upon release. Our priority is the prevention, identification and treatment of infectious and contagious disease -- particularly HIV, AIDS, tuberculosis, Hepatitis C and COVID-19.
