Monitoring and evaluating knowledge-based initiatives in a Caribbean context

 By Valerie Gordon and Yacine Khelladi

 24 JANUARY 2014. SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — The Caribbean has benefitted from significant development assistance in the more than four decades since most of the countries became independent of colonial powers. The form and dollar value of this assistance has varied considerably, and has supported interventions ranging from infrastructure development to human and institutional capacity building, and civil society support to environmental management.

HIV Treatment, Prevention & Care in Jamaican Prisons

“No Sex or Condoms Here”

Sex…rape and consensual, occur in Jamaican Prisons. It’s the worst kept secret. Ex-prisoners talk about this frightening ordeal: Sex among male prisoners and yet prison officials refuse to allow condoms to be distributed in the island’s prisons. Condoms are considered contraband and if prisoners are found with any, they are confiscated.

This video explores this very taboo and emotional issue. Ex-prisoners and former employees of the prisons talk openly about what occur behind the prisons walls often under cover of darkness. The non-distribution of condoms and the link to HIV transmission as well as the human rights of prisoners are also explored.

This video was produced by Advanced Media Production under a fellowship administered by Panos Caribbean and funded by Panos’ Global AIDS Programme.
