Professor Morag MacDonald
Morag started her research career due to her concern about prisoners who were HIV positive in UK prisons. Becoming an academic allowed her to research the subject and provided a position from which to contribute to policy making in this area.
This has led Morag to a career in researching prisoner health internationally. Prisoner health encompasses a wide range of subject areas such as HIV, drug addiction. Alcohol problems, domestic violence and concerns about specifically vulnerable people in the prison environment like women and young prisoners.
