Watch the video: COVID-19 in prisons

Thursday, 18 March 2021

Take a look at the video of yesterday's webinar, 'COVID-19 in prisons: strategies for preventing infection and death'.

In the second of our three-part series on COVID-19 in prisons, our speakers discussed lessons learned on how to manage pandemics in prisons here and abroad.

What went right, what went wrong and what would an ideal strategy look like next time? 

We had four speakers:

  • Professor Richard Coker, Emeritus Professor of Public Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
  • Dr Alves da Costa, working for WHO EURO Health, Alcohol, Illicit Drugs and Prison Health Programme
  • Professor Nick Hardwick, Professor of Criminal Justice, Royal Holloway University, and former Chief Inspector of Prisons
  • Samson Nseko, Project Coordinator for Prison Reform International's Africa Programme in Kampala, Uganda
