AbstractThe role prisons play in the spread of infectious disease among prisoners is well appreciated. But the health problems of prisoners extend far beyond prison walls. As former inmates return home to their families and communities, so too do the health risks to which they're exposed. Taken together, the health problems that flow between prisons and communities create an incarceration-health link that threatens inmates and non-inmates alike.
