According to data collected by The Marshall Project and the Associated Press, one in five state and federal inmates has tested positive for coronavirus—that’s four times the infection rate of the US general population.1 Not only are those numbers alarming, but inmates also suffer disproportionate rates of mental illness, substance use disorder, and chronic illness compared to the general population. Many do not have health insurance, nor do they receive adequate healthcare. The need for effective and efficient correctional healthcare services—with a whole-health, mind-body approach—is a public health issue. Additionally, how inmates reintegrate back to the general population must be seamless so proper transitions of care can take place.
