There is currently an opportunity to enable countries and researchers to access useable, directly comparable data on prison health governance, systems and administration.

During 2016 and 2017 WHO (Europe) regional office provided the questionnaire to WHO national contact points in member countries in the Europe region. So far 38 of these member countries have completed the survey, in consultation with their prison health authorities, via a system for on-line data entry.

The next stage is to expand this questionnaire to other WHO regions. A coalition is forming to undertake this work and make the minimum dataset truly global, with an initial focus on Asia Pacific countries.

The project is being developed in collaboration with the WHO (Europe) Health in Prisons Program, which will host the results on the existing platform.
