Why Are We (Still) Discussing Correctional Health and the Community?
ROBERTO HUGH POTTER
JHHSA, Vol. 41 No. 3, (2018)
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 Generalâ€™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.
