MEDICAL FACILITIES FOR THE PRISONERS

Whole time Doctors are posted, one each, in Central Jails at Kanda (Shimla), & Nahan, District Jail Dharamshala and Open Air Jail Bilaspur. Doctors from Local Civil Hospitals visit the remaining Jails on part-time for the medical check-up/treatment of the prisoners lodged there. One post of Dispenser/Pharmacist has also been sanctioned for each of the Jails/Sub Jails to assist the Doctors. In cases of serious illness, prisoners are sent to the District Hospitals, Indira Gandhi Medical College Shimla, PGI Chandigarh and the Hospitals situated in New Delhi. Mentally ill prisoners are sent to Mental Hospital Boileuganj. Expenditure on medical treatment is borne by the Government. Special medical check-up camps are organized by the Doctors of Indira Gandhi Medical College Shimla and voluntary organizations to treat the ailing prisoners. To overcome the HIV/AIDS public health challenge, Integrated Counselling & Testing Centers (ICTC) has been established in 04 Jails, i.e. Central Jails at Nahan and Kanda (Shimla), Open Air Jail at Bilaspur and Sub Jail at Mandi in collaboration with HP State AIDS Control Society. In these centres counselling of prisoners is being done thereby bringing about the awareness regarding the hazards of this disease. This programme is successfully running in these Jails.
