TB & Prisons: The Facts for Inmates and Officers is a 17 page booklet published by the National Prison Project of the ACLU. As readers of PLN know, there is an epidemic of the resistant tuberculosis (TB) sweeping the nation's prisons. This timely and informative booklet gives the reader a rundown on what TB is, how it is spread, how it is treated, how to know if you have TB, how to safeguard against getting it, etc. This is an excellent booklet on an issue that vitally affects everyone in prison, prisoners and staff alike. The booklet is free for single orders; bulk copies are available. I would suggest prisoners to inform their respective prison administrations of the existence of the booklet and encourage them to purchase it in bulk to distribute to the entire prison population. Another booklet AIDS & Prisons: The Facts is also available. Write: National Prison Project, TB Booklet, 1875 Connecticut Ave. N.W., Washington DC 20009.
