There is a significant need for more knowledge about women in prison. WOMPRIS is a collaborative project between PRISONHEALTH and PriSUD, with the aim of shedding light on challenges and issues that are particularly relevant to female inmates and women who have previously been incarcerated in Norway.
The project's data foundation consists of linkages between the nPRIS cohort and various other national registers (such as the patient register, cause of death register, and living conditions data from Statistics Norway). You can read more about the background of the project here.
So far, one article has been published in the project, which deals with the prevalence of mental health diagnoses in prison. The next article will focus on mortality among women after release from prison. Like all other articles in the project, it will also be disseminated via the PriSUD website as soon as it has undergone peer review and been published.
