Barriers to health care acquisition
Ways to overcome barriers:
Anticipation of rejection by service agencies based on prior difficulty in trying to negotiate system requirements.
Desire to deny the reality of their at-risk behaviors or their need for medical/mental health intervention.
Distrust of providers, or of services ( some subcultures are biased against accepting mental health services).
Poor decision making and often irresponsible choices.
The idea of providing the incarcerated with good quality of healthcare is very important.
Studies show that common illness among the incarcerated are sexually transmitted diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, substance abuse and mental health issues.
Two major groups of people that require the most health services are women and the elderly.

Should prisoners health be treated like non prisoners?:
Prisoners bring a range of health issues to prison with them and are also at risk of other health problems due to other prisoners.
Many feel that the health of the incarcerated is not a big issue due to them disobeying the law.
The healthcare in the prison facilities goes through so many issues within the facility itself.
It is a must that employees, political officials, the community, health professionals, and even the inmates themselves have to fight and advocate for a better quality of health care in correctional facilities.
Healthcare for the Incarcerated
The focus of this article is the numerous medical and mental health problems of today’s female inmates. In comparison, female and their male counterparts, female prisoners suffer more frequent and serious disease, illness, and injuries. They require and utilize more medical and mental health services. However, correctional institutions continue to offer inadequate health care to women inmates and far less than what they offer male offenders. It is critically important to review the health care needs of women prisoners and the correctional system’s ability to deliver adequate services.
