On Tuesday, 23 May 2023, INHSU Prisons hosted a 90-minute virtual event where we heard from authors of research papers highlighted in the Annual INHSU Prisons Bibliography 2022.
These papers were considered to be of ‘outstanding’ or ‘exceptional’ interest by the INHSU Prisons Executive Committee. Authors of each paper provided an overview of their research alongside practical takeaways and participated in a facilitated panel discussion.
The session was moderated by Dr. Nadine Kronfli, McGill University and Julia Sheehan, Hepatitis C Trust, United Kingdom, and we heard from:
Dr Jack Stone, University of Bristol, United Kingdom
