Advocacy Group Fights for Inmate Rights

Haitian prisons are among the worst world-wide. Inmates are afflicted with lack of nutrition, mental disorders, and heart-related conditions.

Health and Human Rights in Prisons Project is an advocacy group, seeking to change conditions in the prison system. They provide healthcare services and legal aid to assure prisoners' cases are being properly handled by the Haitian justice system.
