Correctional and Rehabilitation centres

The health environment within correctional services is often neglected, as people need to sleep on concrete floor, use less hygienic sanitation facilities, and eat with their hands as utensils are out of bounce. The impact on such prolonged living conditions could cause serious and long term poor health conditions like asthma, TB and athlete’s foot disease.

The normal purpose of a correctional facility and rehabilitation centre is to give the person a second chance in life, and that should include a healthy one.

Such audits are performed with assistance and in the presence of correctional services staff, and the reports treated as confidential.
