NOVEMBER: Children and Prison Month

WEPHREN will be focussing on a variety of different health issues in prisons each month, with themed blogs, discussions and articles. For November, the focus is children and prison and we are calling for contributions during October. 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 children in prison and/or children of people 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 by 27th October 2017.
