Synopsis

This book presents a comprehensive and up-to-date view on what is wrong with the prison health care system in the United States, the challenges facing prisons, and recommendations for addressing issues and problems in correctional systems. In addition to an overview of the most common prison health care problems, this book provides a unique assessment of the needs of largely-overlooked prison populations, including women, people of color, and older adults.
