Prevention Of Spread Of HIV Amongst Vulnerable Groups In South Asia
PDF File Size: 715 KB | Download   
Worldwide at any given time, there are approximately 10 million prison inmates, with an annual turnover of 30 million. Thus, after release, millions of prisoners return to social networks in the general community, thereby facilitating the spread of HIV to the community. Prison inmates are vulnerable to risk behaviours including drug abuse and HIV. Although no reliable estimates are available for the South Asian region, in most countries, drug use and unsafe sexual practices are well-recognized problems in prison settings.
Everywhere in the world, rates of HIV-infection among prison populations are generally much higher than in the general population. Drug use in general, and injecting drug use in particular, as well as violence and the practice of men having sex with men are widespread in prisons. Multi-person use of contaminated drug injecting is an important mode of HIV transmission among prisoners. HIV is also transmitted in prisons through unsafe sexual behaviours, sometimes associated with sexual violence. Drug users are often over represented in prison populations when compared with the so-called “general” population and usually continue using drugs while incarcerated.
