Engage & Empower: Supporting access to TB Health Services for Prisoners and Other Persons Deprived of Liberty

Publications - Released in 2020

This package forms part of a broader series of interventions to find and treat all people with TB, particularly those who currently face barriers to accessing TB services or completing TB treatment, and to support an enabling environment for overcoming the various legal, social and economic barriers that people affected by TB encounter. While it is acknowledged that persons deprived of liberty is a broad description that may include prisoners, this package specifically focuses on the latter and considers specific measures that may be adopted to ensure the effective realization of their right to access TB (and other) health services.
