Access to HIV-, viral hepatitis-, and TB-services for people in prison and other closed settings in Europe: A comparative 10-country report

by
European HIV Legal Forum

In 2018-2019 the European HIV Legal Forum conducted a project on access to HIV-, viral hepatitis-, and TB-services for people in prison and other closed settings in 10 countries (Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, North Macedonia, Spain, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom). The project produced a comparative legal report based on legal survey launched in the 10 countries. One of the key findings of this project showed that people in prison and other closed settings have reduced access to HIV-, viral hepatitis-, and TB- services, compared to the general population, and there is also lack of data on prevalence of different conditions and diseases, which makes planning and budgeting for services more difficult.
