Summary

Crime frequently occurs against a backdrop of poverty; many prisoners and the families have big needs. Supporting their well being will improve quality of life and give a chance to a better future.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

HIV presents a major challenge to prison populations worldwide. The prisons in Bangkok, as elsewhere, house a disproportionate number of individuals of low economic and educational status. This puts them statistically at risk of both incarceration and HIV. Apart form health care concerns, the emotional well being of the prisoners is poor; overcrowded cells, lack of stimulation is combined with depression. The families of prisoners are often in need too, having lost the breadwinner.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our program visits 100 prisoners with HIV. As part of a follow-up to their release, we offer counseling and financial help to provide for the health and well being of their families.

Potential Long Term Impact

Through the support of Siam-Care the 100 prisoners and their families have improved their quality of life; attend school, have jobs and enough food and necessities and are thus less likely to (re)partake in criminal activities in the future.
