Summary Description of your Organization
Prison Partners for Heath Improvement and Monitoring is a Community Based Organisation registered with MANASO established in 2015 after a three year proper research on prisoners welfare on health. The research reviewed that Prisoners are kept in prisons because of different offences but when they are put in and realized that they are TB or HIV positive automatically they are on treatment. The treatment and the sentence moves on parallel lines. When they have been released while the treatment is still going on the continuation of treatment becomes a big problem because the client does not want to be known that he/she is on treatment by the community .This also includes the CSOs mandated to do some implementations in prisons where properly monitoring is not conducted for the funds requested then it ends up being misused due to lack of a monitoring agency. The research also reviewed that the act of MSM has a huge percentage in prisons. This forced the establishment of PPHIM to assist the government of Malawi through the Ministry of Healthy to cover the gap.
