The Central Jail Rawalpindi (Adyala Jail) is one of the historical prisons where famous personalities including former prime ministers of the country have been imprisoned.
Currently, Adiala Jail (Prison) holds double the number of prisoners it is officially allowed to accommodate. More than half of them still have their cases pending in court while hundreds suffer from severe illnesses
What makes this project innovative?
Lack of health facilities is society is a common issue in Pakistan however, prison is the space where the prisoner not only facing the problems of lack of medical facilities but also do not have the right to access the hospital or health care center. Problems faced by the prisoner is not often reported. I tried to highlight the problems of prisoners in this report.
