Health in Detention (with ICRC)
Swiss TPH offers this one-week course in collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to give health professionals the information, methods and tools needed to analyse and address health and human rights issues affecting people in detention. The course covers topics such as detainee health, health systems, control of communicable and non-communicable diseases and ethical issues that arise when providing healthcare services to populations in detention. It also provides an overview of the main legal instruments, professional codes and declarations designed to protect the rights of prisoners, detainees and patients. This course is open to participants working in the field of health in detention, nationally or internationally, and uses a multi-disciplinary approach to bring together academics and clinical, public health and legal experts.
