Sickle Cell and Deaths in Custody Conference
A sudden death in police, prison or military custody is an important point of scrutiny for the powers of the state, especially when such a death is someone of minority ethnic descent.
Sickle Cell is a multi-system disorder that in the UK, predominantly but not exclusively, affects those of black and minority ethnic communities, but is not widely understood.
Join us at this exclusive conference and examine the health, justice and human rights issues surrounding Sickle Cell disorders and deaths in custody.
