Listen to Iringo Hockley give an update on prison conditions and HHRPP success stories

This is an update on the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI)’s Health and Human Rights in Prisons Project (HHRPP) by Iringo Hockley, an IJDH-BAI staff attorney.  The HHRPP is a collaboration between IJDH-BAI and Partners in Health that com­bines the orga­ni­za­tions’ rec­og­nized exper­tise in law and health­care to holis­ti­cally address the vio­la­tions of pris­on­ers’ civil, polit­i­cal, social and eco­nomic human rights.

Prison conditions in Haiti are some of the world’s worst.  In this podcast Iringo gives an update on the post-earthquake conditions of Haiti’s prisons and also shares two success stories of HHRPP advocacy.
