Prison Health News is produced by a Philadelphia-based collective of editors and includes the work of imprisoned artists and writers. Our readers are living inside a system that denies them prevention tools and treatment information about HIV, hepatitis, and other health issues. They are dealing with medical neglect, daily humiliations driven by intense stigma, and the destruction of their communities by mass imprisonment.
Prison Health News is an information network project. Our newsletter, published four times a year for people in prison, strives to lift up the voices, experience and expertise of currently and formerly incarcerated people. We are the only resource that responds to requests for health information from people in prisons and jails everywhere in the United States. With the radical power of information, we work to break down prison walls and build health and social justice for all.
