Hepatitus C Among Offenders--Correctional Challenge and Public Health Opportunity

Volume 67 Number 2
September 2003

The authors discuss the Hepatitus C epidemic among offenders and its impact on drug and health services treatment programming. Since Hepatitus C can be found among up to 40 percent of the correctional population and a high proportion of those with substance abuse disorders, effective programming must address the medical needs of the infected.
