The impact of COVID-19 in prisons
The Copenhagen Centre for Disaster Research and the School of Global Health at the University of Copenhagen are pleased to invite you to an online discussion on the impact of COVID-19 in prisons and on people living in prisons.

The CONVERGE Working Group on Prisons and Prisoners in COVID-19 aims to assess the impacts of COVID-19 in prisons and explore associated responses from governments, prison administrations, people in prison and associated stakeholders. Documenting and understanding the diversity and scope of such impacts and initiatives in different cultural, economic and political settings, and within the scope of existing disaster risk reduction, public health and detention policies, is essential to meaningfully inform approaches to improve the health and wellbeing of prisoners and ultimately uphold their human rights.

The online event will present preliminary themes emerging from an ongoing working group study with a particular focus on Peru, Russia and the United States of America.
