Hard Time: HIV and Hepatitis C Prevention Programming for Prisoners in Canada
The goal of this report is to encourage and aid prison systems, other sectors of government, non-governmental and community organizations, and prisoners themselves in responding to the challenges of HIV and HCV, particularly with respect to prevention. This report is intended to fulfill this goal by increasing:
- knowledge and understanding of legal and human rights issues related to HIV and HCV prevention and harm reduction in prisons;
- awareness of the many enabling polices and the best and promising programs for prison HIV and HCV prevention and harm reduction that exist in Canada; and
- the capacity of governmental, non-governmental and community organizations, and prisoners and prison staff to participate in the formulation and implementation of HIV and HCV prevention and harm reduction policy and programs.
