Healthcare services at Kerobokan, the island’s largest prison, have resumed although not to full capacity, following the massive riot on Feb. 21. The prison authority stated, however, that a full resumption of health services would be achieved next week.
“No damage was caused to the facilities in our clinic; thus, we have resumed [some] healthcare services for the inmates,” the Kerobokan Prison health clinic head, Dr. AA Ngurah Gede Hartawan, said Tuesday.
The methadone substitution therapy for heroin addicts and antiretroviral (ARV) therapy for HIV-positive inmates are carried out continuously as the clinic has an adequate supply of medicine, according to Hartawan. There are currently 27 inmates participating in the harm-reduction methadone therapy. Meanwhile, among the 32 known HIV-positive inmates, 11 of them are currently receiving ARV cocktails.
