Prisoners with HIV/AIDS: A Participatory Learning and Action (PLA) initiative in Malaysia (PLA 41)

C J Townsend

Journal article

Working with HIV infected prisoners within the Malaysian prison system, this paper describes how participation was used to bring groups of infected prisoners together to form support networks and to help them prioritise their needs. This led to established support groups in two prisons, no longer dependent on outside facilitation.

This article was published in PLA 41, a compilation of articles of general interest to participation practitioners (June 2001). Participatory Learning and Action (PLA, formerly PLA Notes) is the world's leading series on participatory learning and action approaches and methods. PLA publishes articles on participation aimed at practitioners, researchers, academics, students and activists. All articles are peer-reviewed by an international editorial board.
