Lines, Rick and Stöver, Heino and Donochoe, Martin C and Lazarus, Jeffrey V (2009) Monitoring harm reduction in European prisons via the Dublin Declaration. International Journal of Prisoner Health , 5 , (4) , pp. 251-255.

The Dublin Declaration on Partnership to fight HIV/AIDS in Europe and Central Asia is the key policy document on HIV/AIDS in the European Region as a whole Among the Declaration's 33 actions for governments are many that apply to prison populations. Based upon an analysis of these commitments, and a review of the current status of states in meeting those targets, it is clear that the scale-up of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment programmes and services in prisons lags far behind what is needed, what is available outside of prisons, and what is mandated within the Declaration itself.
