PILP 2022 Annual Event - Confronting the Healthcare Crisis Behind Bars
The Pennsylvania Institutional Law Project hosted its first ever annual meeting, entitled Confronting the Healthcare Crisis Behind Bars, on October 20, 2022. The meeting was focused on the work of combating various healthcare crises - beyond the COVID-19 pandemic - behind bars in Pennsylvania jails and prisons.
Beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare presents a major obstacle when incarcerated and PILP has seen it all. During the meeting attendees heard from PILP attorneys and clients about the wide range of healthcare challenges that individuals behind bars face on a daily basis. There were discussions about PILP's work in diabetic care, mental health, MOUD, and trans care, among other topics.
