Physical activity programme for pregnant Argentinian prisoners Buenos Aires, Argentina
Since September 2012, EMBARAZO ACTIVO has been providing a physical activity programme for groups of female inmates at Prison Unit Number 31 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The programme has been developed specifically for pregnant women and those prisoners caring for babies under eight months old. The programme is delivered free of charge.
Mariela Villar, CEO of EMBARAZO ACTIVO initially developed and delivered the programme. In 2013 she trained prison staff who now operate the programme, with Mariela providing supervision and advice every fifteen days.
