February: Women and prison

WEPHREN will be focussing on a variety of different health issues in prisons each month, with themed blogs, discussions and articles. For February, the focus is women and prison and we are calling for contributions during December and January. Please send us any articles, guidelines, case studies etc that you feel would be interesting and of benefit to those working on prison health across the world on women in prison. We will review and collate these contributions in one place so that they are easily accessible to all. 

Please send your contributions to wephren@phe.gov.uk by 31st January 2018.
