"Death Yards: Continuing Problems with Arizona's Correctional Health Care" outlines illegal and deadly mistreatment of Arizona inmates whose medical care the state contracted out to the country's largest private prison health care provider.

The report, by AFSC's Caroline Isaacs, provides evidence in support of a 2012 ACLU class-action lawsuit that has the potential to force the state of Arizona to improve its prison medical care. The new report contains 14 specific case studies to illustrate the issues covered in the law suit.
