Annotation: The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) responds to various recommendations made by the Expert Committee on AIDS and Prisons (ECAP).
Abstract: ECAP's recommendations had to do with seroprevalence studies, testing for HIV infection, offender medical information, housing and activities, education about HIV and AIDS, education about drug use, consensual and nonconsensual sexual activity, preventing harm from injection drug use, preventing harm from tattooing, preventing harm from piercing, protective measures for staff, health care, tuberculosis, prison health services, aftercare, women inmates, aboriginal inmates, and implementation of these recommendations. CSC accepted most of ECAP's recommendations and agreed with the premises on which they were founded. However, it disagreed with a proposal to remove current prohibition against consensual sexual activity between inmates, and with recommendations for the provision of methadone maintenance treatment and pilot needle test exchange programs
