Evaluation overview – MIARINA – Improving comprehensive management of tuberculosis and HIV in prison settings in Madagascar
Prisoners are 8 times more likely to develop tuberculosis than the general population.
Tuberculosis is the leading cause of death among people living with HIV/AIDS, so L’Initiative is making co-infections a priority.
Hampered by numerous challenges, including overcrowding and poor nutrition, access to healthcare is particularly difficult for people in prison.
In collaboration with Madagascan government institutions, the project partners have improved the global management of tuberculosis and HIV in prisons in Madagascar (prevention, screening, treatment, psychosocial support and preparation for economic reintegration).
