The Prisoners, Medical Care and Entitlement to Health in England and Ireland, 1850-2000 is a major five-year project, funded by a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award, and led by co-PIs Associate Professor Catherine Cox (UCD) and Professor Hilary Marland (University of Warwick). The project undertakes research into topics that resonate with current concerns in the prison service, including the very high incidence of mental health problems amongst prisoners, the health of women and maternity services in prison, and responses to addiction and HIV/AIDS.
The recent outcomes of the HIV/AIDS in prisons (1980-2000) theme can be found here.
