It’s obvious none of you work in the prison system, why are you even on this site?? Go away and spam somewhere else.

Hi
Every should be checked in a correctional facility, inmates and employees and should be checked regularly for any diseases. I know that there arre lots of homosexual people in prison and it will be hard to control the spread of HIV/AIDS. Everyone is at risk, that’s the reason why some one should keep eye on this subject. Any suggestion how we can change this?

A failure to manage these situations will mean that they become community health problems as a result of contact between the prison and wider society, through staff and visitors, and as a result of the final release of the prisoners. I totally agree !

I’m a freelance writer working on a story about the policy of New York prisons not to distribute condoms to inmates. I’m looking for doctors, prison staff, inmates and their families to comment on the health consequences of these policies. Voices from other states are welcome. I can be reached at mep375@nyu.edu.

Each person that is in a correctional facility, inmates and employees, should all be checked regularly for any diseases. I know that with homosexuality in prison it would be hard to control the spread of HIV/AIDS. But, yearly tests should be performed just to know who has a disease so that employees know who that are at risk with.

 
Male_user Kasi 1 post A big proportion of those in prison are infected with infectious diseases, such as TB, hepatitis and HIV/AIDS. Prison administrations have a responsibility to those who come into prison, prisoners especially, but also staff and visitors, to ensure that they are not exposed to danger of infection. A failure to manage these situations will mean that they become community health problems as a result of contact between the prison and wider society, through staff and visitors, and as a result of the final release of the prisoners. Therefore prisons must provide proper screening and counseling of such inmates and Prison staff. The most important arrangement is that of segregating the infected inmates to avoid further spread of the communicable diseases. furthermore a law also needs to be enacted which allows the inmates of either sex to have a conjugal meeting with their spouses, once in three months- in a separate accommodation- within the prison premises and for three consecutive days.
