Why Are We (Still) Discussing Correctional Health and the Community?
Author: ROBERTO HUGH POTTER
Published in JHHSA, Vol. 41 No. 3
This article provides a brief overview of some of the issues in the relationships among correctional health issues and community health that lead to the original draft Surgeon General’s Call to Action on Corrections and Community Health. Unfortunately, more than a decade later, we continue to see the health disparities observed in the early 2000s persist. A systemic approach to problems presented by correctional populations is provided. This is followed by an intervention approach that might assist public administrators and non-profit mangers to improve the health of communities by targeting health and disabilities observed in those who process through our criminal justice system.
