Short Update: Prison and medical NGOs jointly call for masks to be available for everyone, including prisoners

FairTrialsAdmin - May 13, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, prison conditions

The Association of Health Professionals Practicing in Prison, Doctors of the World and the French section of the International Observatory of Prisons have released a joint statement calling for masks to be available to everyone, including people in prison and detention. 

They warn about the lack of access to masks for people in detention, despite the dark irony that these people were among the first mobilised to actually make masks – to which they do not now have access.
