Ligue des Droits de L’Homme (LDH) issued a press release in French:  La santé, un droit fondamental dont personne ne peut être exclu calling for effective healthcare provision for people held in places of detention. LDH calls for the early release of people in pre-trial detention, of elderly detainees and those with health conditions.
