Short description:
The HIPP seeks to be a driving force towards innovation in prison health, linking prison health more closely with the public health framework. In practical terms it functions by regularly bringing together key actors in the field, creating a pool of knowledge and expertise and at the same time serving as a point of entry to influence prison health policies and programmes in individual countries and institutions. It offers strategic guidance and the development of agreed principles, policies and practices to improve the health of prisoners and their wider communities.
