Overview

UN agencies have jointly developed a document to support countries in planning and implementing an effective response to HIV and AIDS in prisons and other closed settings. It takes into consideration principles of international law, including international rules, guidelines, declarations and covenants governing prison health, international standards of medical ethics and international labour standards. A comprehensive package of 15 interventions is proposed which are essential for effective HIV prevention and treatment in closed settings.
