The Kiev Declaration on Women's Health in Prison sets achievable international standards of care for incarcerated women and their children. Two speakers present very different approaches to these standards, one in which the state provides a well-funded mother-child program, the other in which prisoners take on important advocacy, planning, and service delivery roles. This critique explores the possibilities and limits of the declaration and these approaches, given the global economic and political changes of 2008-9.

Learning Objectives:
Discuss critically gender specific programs for women in prison including mother-infant and harm reduction programs.

Keywords: Public Health Education and Health Promotion, Prisoners Health Care
