Health in prisons : health promotion in the prison setting : summary report on a WHO meeting, London, 15-17 October 1995
AbstractThe Working Group was convened to look into the validity and feasibility of health promotion in penal institutions. it examined the current position of such health promotion in the countries represented, the need for regular exchange of information and experience, and the identification of common areas of difficulty and concern. It was concluded that the prison community is eminently suitable for health promotion activities, and would offer great benefits to a vulnerable sector of the population represented by prisoners, their families and prison staff. It was agreed that a European health in prisons network, along the lines of other WHO networks concerned with schools, hospitals, workplaces and cities, would be set up, and that a coordinating centre would be established
