This video takes you inside the walls of one of the worst prisons in the Western hemisphere. It's not the toughest prison in the world, but overcrowding, poor sanitation, and a general lack of funding in Haiti's National Penitentiary have led to exorbitant HIV and Tuberculosis rates. Reporter Antigone Barton and videographer Stephen Sapienza take a first-hand look at these conditions and an American doctor working to correct them. After this video was taken, USAID authorized $110,000 in emergency funding for health and sanitation improvements.

This report is part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "Heroes of HIV: HIV in the Caribbean " (http://bit.ly/w1AyVw).
