New Project Website: Prisoner Health

‘Prisoners, Medical Care and Entitlement to Health in England and Ireland, 1850-2000’ undertakes research into topics that resonate with current concerns in the prison service, including the very high incidence of mental health problems amongst prisoners, the health of women and maternity services in prison, and responses to addiction and HIV/AIDS. All the different strands of research will straddle the period from the start of the modern prison system in the mid-nineteenth century up to the current day, and compare the provision of medical services and notions of the entitlement of prisoners to health in both England and Ireland.

This is a new 5 year project funded by a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award headed by Dr Catherine Cox (UCD) and Professor Hilary Marland (Warwick), further information can be found here.
