Justice Health Unit hosts COVID-19 and Detention Webinar 6: Towards a data-driven global response
The Justice Health Unit has hosted the final webinar in the six webinar series on Building a sustainable, comprehensive response to COVID-19 in relation to detention. This webinar, titled Towards a data-driven global response, focused on the need for data on COVID-19 response strategies implemented, their effectiveness in reducing COVID-19, and impact on the broader health and human rights of people in custody and staff to inform the global response going forward.
The webinar, held on 9 September 2021, was co-facilitated by Prof Stuart Kinner and Louise Southalan of the Justice Health Unit.
We aim to continue our work on this issue, with our international and Australasian collaborators, through various channels and forums.
