Studio Hirondelle DRC's radio feature on Congolese women in prison ©AFP

Most places of detention in the DRC were built during the colonial era. Fifty years later, very few new jails have been built while the prison population has grown. Consequences: overcrowding, promiscuity and insalubrity. These conditions affect the health and endanger the lives of prisoners. An even more difficult situation for female prisoners. A report by Studio Hirondelle DRC carried out in the provinces of Kasai, Kasai-Oriental, Ituri and Kongo Central.
