Dominican Republic, February 28, 2020. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for Central America and the Caribbean (UNODC ROPAN) coordinated a study visit to the Correction and Rehabilitation Centers (CCR) of the new Prison Management Model (PMM) Najayo Women and Najayo Men in the Dominican Republic, and the UN Resident Coordinator, Mauricio Ramirez.

This visit was carried out with the purpose of supporting the Plan for the Humanization of the Prison System in the Dominican Republic.

The United Nations delegation toured with the directors of both centers to learn about the conditions, facilities and operation of these centers, as well as the prison reform process, witnessing some of the training and productive activities carried out by persons deprived of their liberty.

A discussion was also held with some of the inmates in order to get their perspective on the operation of these centres.
