Access to HCV related services in prison settings in Europe: A community perspective

by
European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG)

The following report is a part of the research component and has been prepared by EATG members and associates. It covers the topic of HCV in the penitentiary system and consists of a general overview of the situation in the WHO Europe region and a more in-depth snapshot of six case countries. All data collection on the case countries was conducted by local people, working with non-governmental organisations (NGOs), or EATG staff.

The purpose of the report is to document gaps and positive developments in the treatment and care for prisoners in selected European and Central Asian countries. This report intend to support the advocacy activities of community groups and organisations by providing them with information and insights of both problems and possibilities of how their local systems may be improved and as a result expand the access to services for inmates.
