Zambia's 'death traps'

The Prisons Care and Counseling Association, and AIDS and Rights Alliance for Southern Africa joined Human Rights Watch in issuing a report that documents the state of Zambian prisons. It focuses on the poor conditions that persist for inmates.

There is some very compelling evidence contained in this report, and it paints a very painful picture. I really hope this report makes it to the President, Zambia Prisons Service, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Justice, parliamentarians, and the general public.
