Summary
  • Prisoners have far greater health needs than the general population, with high levels of mental health disorders, illicit substance use, chronic disease, communicable disease and disability. Mental health disorders and harmful drug use are particularly prevalent in the prisoner population with only about one-quarter of prisoners having neither problem. This report is the third in a biannual series on indicators of prisoner health in Australia. It presents data from a survey of 794 prison entrants, over 4,000 prisoners attending prison health clinics, about 9,000 prisoners who took medication, and 387 prison dischargees, regarding their socioeconomic background, mental health before and while in prison, self-harm, communicable diseases, chronic conditions, women's health, drug and alcohol use before and while in prison, unprotected sex, assaults and sexual assault, use of health services, and deaths in custody. Information is also provided on Indigenous Australian prisoners, international comparisons, and prison services.
