Related Project: Asylum Seekers

November 11, 2016

As part of PIAC’s Asylum Seeker Health Rights Project, we are identifying best practice models for health standards in detention.

We are reviewing standards for the provision of medical and mental health care in Australian jails and prisons, juvenile justice centres, detained forensic environments and immigration detention facilities in other countries. We are guided by principles contained in international human rights law instruments and developed in international human rights law jurisprudence.

PIAC also works with experts including practitioners and academics in the medical profession and criminal justice field.
