There is a huge amount of literature on HIV/AIDS and HCV in prisons, but some of it is difficult to access. Work on an annotated bibliography started in March 2005 and was completed in November 2005. Its goal is to promote effective responses, based on scientific evidence and respect for human rights, to the issues raised by HIV/AIDS and HCV in prisons. This issue contains part 1 of a selection of ‘essential resources’ taken from the bibliography. Documents were included if they were: recent (or still unique); brief (or comprehensive); readable; published by a reputable organization; published as a paper in a high impact factor journal; scientifically rigorous; focused on and relevant to developing or transitional nations; relevant to the selection criteria; and the overall impression of the author was strongly favourable. Part 1 contains overview documents, policies, and guidelines; documents on legal, ethical, and human rights issues related to HIV/AIDS in prison; as well as websites and periodicals.
