Yale Prison Health Initiative

In the past 15 years, the American prison population has tripled. Millions of incarcerated people experience varying and often substandard access to health care. Drug treatment programs remain largely inadequate. The spread of infectious disease, including HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, and tuberculosis in prison settings, is a cause for increasing concern.

The Yale Prison Health Initiative works on social justice in prisons through projects such as:
