Lectures delivered by Heino Stöver on Monday, 26 October, as part of the SOLID October School 2020
In the 8-part video lecture series Heino Stöver provides insights into the healthcare for marginalised persons, using and example of drug users in prisons. Incarcerated people are often denied the basic medical care that is generally available to people in the civic society. Harm reduction interventions available in society are often unavailable or very restricted in prison settings. Prof. Stöver starts with providing an international picture of the issue, presents recent evidence from European studies, and discusses in detail specific interventions: opioid substitution treatment, needle exchange programs, and condom programs to reduce sexual risks. In the final sections he discusses post-release mortality and overdose prevention programs.

In the spring of 2022, we visited a couple of facilities in Germany (Berlin and Frankfurt) that provide help a and support to people who use drugs, people with HIV, people struggling with mental health. We were curious to learn more about their services with a particular interest focused on social work services available in their facilities.
