This session presents the results of a special theme issue of The Lancet on HIV, HCV, and TB among prisoners and detainees. The lead authors present: a global review of the burden of HIV, viral hepatitis and TB among prisoners; clinical care among incarcerated women and men; best practices for prevention in prisons and jails; human rights and the right to health care access; and two region-specific presentations—on prisoners in Eastern Europe and Central Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.  The session concludes with a call to action from a former detainee. 
The session is aimed at clinicians and providers, policy makers, community members, and the legal, corrections, advocacy and human rights communities. Participants get a state of the art update on HIV, HCV, and TB among prisoners, best practices for prevention and treatment, and a greater understanding of the negative impacts of mass incarceration and human rights abrogation on the health of prisoners, families, and communities.
