Join us in a discussion with Albert Wirya of LBH Masyarakat (Indonesia), Hussein Taib of MEWA (Kenya), and IDPC Regional Director: Asia Gloria Lai about how prison conditions and releases promised during COVID-19 have been handled.

This is to launch our new briefing “Prisons and COVID19 - Lessons from an ongoing crisis” written by Alexander Söderholm and produced with Penal Reform International Reprieve LBH Masyarakat - Community Legal Aid Institute and Harm Reduction International.

The objective of this brief is to bring attention to the ongoing crisis posed by the COVID-19 pandemic in prison settings around the world, while prompting public authorities to provide adequate care for and to reduce the numbers of, people in prison.
