Chapter 11 discusses issues associated with inmates challenged with HIV/AIDS. The authors present a variety of statistics regarding inmates with AIDS, specifically the high death count beginning in the 1980s. With new medical technology and a better standard of care, inmates began to survive, complete their sentences, and return to the community.
Chapter 12 presents the concept that health issues, including HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, tuberculosis, aging prison populations, and substance abuse, are straining and altering correctional policy and practice (p. 163).
