CHREAA and SALC are collaborating in the fight against the spread of TB in prisons by implementing a uniquely designed rights-based approach project named, Stop TB in Prisons in Malawi. The project seeks to transform the TB response to become rights-based, gender transformative, and people-centred; mobilize and empower the prison communities on TB; update the relevant TB policies on prisons in line with the international recommendations and; ensure that TB is adequately screened, diagnosed, prevented, treated and managed in all the prison stations. In the year 2023, CHREAA conducted a number of activities including training prison staff; establishing a monitoring framework allowing prisoners and paralegals to document concerns and seek accountability at different levels; advocacy with Parliamentarians focusing on legal and policy improvements related to TB and other infectious diseases; meetings with the Malawi Prison Training School aimed at incorporating human rights approaches into the curriculum and; developing and publishing the TB Management Guideline for Prison Facilities. CHREAA also submitted key proposals to the United Nations High Level Meeting in 2023, advocating for improved conditions for inmates, particularly concerning TB prevalence in prisons.
