Prisoner health is public health: understanding and improving responses to injecting drug use and infectious disease in prison populations

 

Overview

This symposium will explore current policy and clinical responses to injecting drug use and infectious disease in prisoners and ex-prisoners, both in Australia and internationally. It will explore how these policies and practices impact on health, in the context of available evidence. A series of brief, focused presentations by leading researchers, policy makers and clinicians will be followed by facilitated discussion of current and potential responses to injecting drug use and infectious disease care and prevention among prisoners and ex-prisoners.
