eSwatini

Our work in eSwatini focuses on improving the health and wellbeing of marginalised prison populations.

As part of our regional prison health programme across southern Africa, we work to improve the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and general wellbeing of highly vulnerable prison populations. Our innovative approach uses the power of peer-to-peer education to improve prisoners' knowledge of SRH and communicable diseases, whilst developing inmate-led support groups that provide essential counselling and cell-based care.
