By: Rashana Griggs

Jail house tattoos Sharing Needles Forcible Rape Education Condoms Hypothesis: As the prisons' population continue to increase without current data of AIDS/ HIV the disease will remain on the rise. condoms are prohibited in prisons
can be used to smuggle contraband
promotes same sex-sexual acts
HIV infections rates in New York State prisons are estimated at 10 percent for males and 20-25 percent for females.

Jail House tattoos are prohibited. They can cause so many diseases and infection
Jail house tattoos are often done illegally
Needles are often rare and illegal to have
they hide them and use the same needle on others
this doubles the risk of AIDS/HIV
They won't allow tattoos to be conducted by a tattoo gun because it can be used as a weapon
Tattoos aren't allowed legally because of what some tattoos represent, insulting to others and will start more friction Prison Reentry Background Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome or Human Immune Virus also know as AIDS/HIV
AIDS/HIV is rapidly increasing in prisons

AIDS was first identified among prison inmates in 1983.

In 2001, the rate of confirmed cases of HIV infection was four times greater among federal and state prisoners than in the general population

African American males don’t go to any type of health care services when they aren’t incarcerated
reason being: lack of health care insurance, distrust of medical establishment

African American men AIDS/HIV results weren't adding up to the research statistics

African American men don't consider themselves as homosexual once exiting prison

Men in all demographic backgrounds say they could careless about getting tested for AIDS/HIV when they aren't incarcerated

Many prisons officials are slow to embrace HIV prevention messages that they perceive as directly contradicting policies that prohibit anal sex, condom use, and injection drug use in prison.

Prison rape is a physical and psychologically damaging experience.
It is also a difficult challenge for correctional departments to secure all inmates
Most inmates have grown to either ignore it or accept it
Rape in prison spreads the disease of AIDS/HIV quickly
Human Right Watch's Prison Project: Is an organization who keep record of prison rapes for correctional facilities

Rape campaign awareness has increased
However, prison rape allegations have jumped almost 200% from 2000 to 2004

Prison rape was experienced by at least 10% of male prisoners aged 18-25
A small amount of victims report sexual assault
the sharing of needles happen often in prison
distribution of sterile syringes to inmates has been discussed as a means of preventing more HIV transmission
however, The US does not plan on giving out sterile syringes in prison
Europe did an evaluation with needle exchange program for 1 year
results were good, needles weren't used as weapons
decreased in sharing of needles
there were no new cases of HIV, hepatitis B or hepatitis C
majority of prisoners go back into society, many with AIDS/HIV

many return to prison with AIDS/HIV; increasing the risk of transmitting the disease

prisoner should get tested once they leave prison and when they re enter

To better the prison health system there needs to be more prevention programs

The first educational programs to be removed from prison are AIDS/HIV prevention programs

This happens due to budget cut in prisons.

More research about AIDS/HIV being transmitted in prisons need to be conducted often
