Health Delivery Systems in Women's Prisons: The Case of Ohio

Volume 64 Number 1
June 2000

Health care in women's prisons presents special challenges, due to higher incidences of medical problems, the after-effects of abuse, and specialized conditions such as pregnancy. The authors look at health delivery systems in three women's prisons in Ohio, interviewing staff to describe the range of systems and procedures, benefits and drawbacks, in caring for imprisoned women in Ohio.
