Abstract: This field report describes Health through Wall’s experience working in the largest men’s prison in Haiti. Though there have been many reports of prison peer health education programs, this field report further describes how peers can increase the (self-reported) interest and uptake of HIV testing. More than 400 anonymous surveys were collected. Preliminary results indicate that the peers had a significant impact on self-reported interest in taking the HIV test. Abstract published by arrangement with Sage Journals.
