Sentenced to Die? : the problem of TB in prisons in Eastern Europe and Central Asia by Vivien Stern

£28.99

Product description

This book is in very good condition, with minimal wear and creasing to the front cover. There is no writing or highlighting on the pages within.
The tuberculosis epidemic in the prisons of Russia and neighbouring countries constitutes a disaster of major proportions. Of the 1 million prisoners in Russia, 100,000 are estimated to be infected with active TB. In Kazakhstan the figure is estimated at 20%. The position is worsened by the spread of a new and deadly form of TB, a form that is resistant to the main TB drugs and therefore very difficult and costly to cure. Death rates from TB are very high. The conditions in the overcrowded, unventilated and unsanitary prisons where hundreds of thousands of prisoners are held are a perfect breeding ground for the TB bacilli. The resources are not available in the prison system or the public health systems of the countries concerned to deal with the epidemic and provide appropriate treatment. This volume gathers together much important material on the topic.
