Relaunch of Prison Health News!

Dear friends and colleagues,

After a few years break, Prison Health News is back and better than ever -- with four extra pages of health care and advocacy information in each issue, and a network of over 2,000 subscribers and contributors in prisons and jails across the country.

In 2001, Prison Health News was launched to meet a critical need for information written by and for people who have been in prison or are currently behind the walls.   Our readers are living inside a system that denies them prevention tools and treatment information about HIV, hepatitis, and other health issues.  They are dealing with medical neglect, daily humiliations driven by intense stigma, and the destruction of their communities by mass imprisonment.  Prison Health News works to build community across the prison walls that divide us.

Prison Health News

A lot of inmates from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community feel lonely because either their families gave up hope for them, or they’re so caught up in the system that they feel like there’s no hope for them when they come out. So they stay  in the same addictive behaviors when they come out, which is not healthy for someone living with HIV.
