The rate of HIV among prisoners is 5 to 7 times that of the general population. A policy review on HIV prevention and care for injecting drug users in prison settings has been supported in Kenya, and unodc has provided advisory services to four African States. In prisons where effective treatment is available, the number of aids-related deaths has been found to be similar to, or better than, the rate in the non-incarcerated community.
