SALC is challenging the fact that terminally ill remandees have no opportunity to provide evidence to an independent arbiter on the state of their health. This presents a serious challenge to those hoping to have their health concerns addressed while in detention awaiting trial, which can take years in Malawi. The applicant in this case is a 17 year old boy who is believed to be suffering from later stage AIDS. SALC is working with the Centre for Human Rights, Education, Advice and Assistance (CHREAA) on the case.
