Abstract Prison healthcare professionals work in a unique clinical environment designed to punish rather than to heal.123 Amid global calls for penal reform, healthcare professionals have an ethical responsibility4 to speak out about correctional practices that endanger health and human rights.5 We examine this responsibility in relation to prolonged solitary confinement, a practice that persists in prisons around the world.
