Prison health priorities in Burkina Faso: a cross-sectional study in the two largest detention environments in Burkina Faso
This study highlighted higher frequencies of digestive, skin and respiratory complaints and diseases in the two largest detention centers in Burkina Faso. These diseases are variously related to age, penal status and length of incarceration. In addition, underweight and thiamin vitamin deficiency responsible for beriberi are more frequent in adult prisoners, those not attending school, convicted prisoners and those with a length of stay in detention of more than nine months. These concrete results should help define a strategy and priority actions needed to reduce morbidity in prisons.PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: The actions sh...

Knowledge of the good Samaritan drug overdose act and possession of a naloxone kit among people recently released from prison
This study aims to describe knowledge of Canada’s Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act (GSDOA) and take home naloxone (THN) training and kit possession among people being released from provincial correctional facilities in British Columbia. The authors conducted surveys with clients of the Unlocking the Gates Peer Health Mentoring program on their release. The authors compared the characteristics of people who had and had not heard of the GSDOA and who were in possession of a THN kit. In this study, 71% people had heard of the GSDOA, and 55.6% were in possession of a THN kit. This study found that 99% of people who...

Insights gained from early modelling of COVID-19 to inform the management of outbreaks in UK prisons
Declan Bays, Hannah Williams, Lorenzo Pellis, Jacob Curran-Sebastian, Oscar O'Mara, PHE Joint Modelling Team, Thomas Finnie International Journal of Prisoner Health, Vol. ahead-of-print, No. ahead-of-print, pp.- In this work, the authors present some of the key results found during early efforts to model the COVID-19 outbreak inside a UK prison. In particular, this study describes outputs from an idealised disease model that simulates the dynamics of a COVID-19 outbreak in a prison setting when varying levels of social interventions are in place, and a Monte Carlo-based model that assesses the reduction ...

Locking out the virus: management of a SARS-CoV-2 outbreak in an Italian prison
In this study, the authors describe the design and effective implementation of prevention and containment measures against SARS-CoV-2 within the walls of a correctional facility. The authors describe how they rapidly created clean confinement sections to isolate cases in an environment designed for security at the expense of virus containment and how educational efforts have played a vital role in their strategy.PMID:34323430 | DOI:10.1108/IJPH-12-2020-0100 (Source: International Journal of Prisoner Health)
