A 13-year-old girl stands in the yard of the women’s prison at Pétionville, a suburb of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Behind her stands a concrete wall, topped with barbed wire. Arrests of minors are frequently gang-related, with alleged offences ranging from petty crime to gun possession and assault. Children are often forcibly inducted into gangs, where they face violence from older gang members, rival gangs and the authorities. Many girls have been sexually abused, and some are HIV-positive. Once in prison, they can be held indefinitely without being charged or tried. UNICEF provides sanitation kits and educational and art supplies to this prison
