In October 2017, PRI’s Sub-Saharan Africa office conducted a training course on the management of vulnerable prisoners, for staff at Mbale Prison in Uganda. The training is part of a FCO-funded project which aims to bridge existing gaps in policy and practice, through enhancing capacity of prison staff in relation to managing vulnerable prisoners.
20 officers and their deputies were trained on international standards, including on the Bangkok Rules. Prison officers shared their practical challenges and experiences, and made a number of recommendations, which are outlined in this briefing.
