Prison Health Services Strategy 2.0. Ministry of Public Health, Afghanistan. (2015)


Prison Health Services are part of Basic Health Services of Afghanistan. The implementation channel of the PHS is the same as BPHS. Health needs of the prisoners are the same to the general population with the difference of higher prevalence and incidence of the diseases in the prisons. Mental problems are more present in the custody system in the country. There is a special focus on mental health services in the prisons and Juvenile Rehabilitation Centers (JRCs). There is a very closed contact among prisoners and it increases risk of spread of communicable disease among the prisoners. Diseases prevention is a back bone of prison health services.
