Copenhagen (AFP) The World Health Organization (WHO) has been concerned about the lack of health care for prisoners in European prisons. Due to a lack of examinations, prisoner-related illnesses often went undetected and untreated, the WHO said in a report on Thursday. She called on prisons to routinely test inmates for tuberculosis, sexually transmitted diseases, mental illness and addictions.
