From 27 to 29 June, the ICRC will be holding the first World Conference on Health in Detention. Health professionals, managers working in detention settings, and academics are invited to share their experiences and research to strengthen prison health systems. In the framework of International Humanitarian Law, the ICRC's role is to ensure that people deprived of liberty are treated humanely.
