Description : Morbidity and mortality rates for all three infectious diseases are normally much higher in prisons due to overcrowding, unsanitary conditions and inadequate screening and treatment. This film shows how successful three prisons in Uganda have been in significantly reducing the spread of tuberculosis (TB), HIV and malaria amongst detainees. The pilot health care projects, run by the Ugandan authorities with the support of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), resulted in significantly increased cure rates of TB, a drop in the number of malaria cases and lower HIV/AIDS mortality rates than in the general population.
