Annotation: A program created to provide services to inmates and parolees in the California Department of Corrections who have been diagnosed as having HIV disease was initiated in 1993 and evaluated in 1994 with respect to its effects on recidivism and prison costs.
Abstract: The Transitional Case Management Program linked inmates with HIV disease to services in the community upon release to parole. The services begin while the offender is still in prison and continue following release to parole. The purpose is to help these parolees obtain local HIV/AIDS services so that they do not need to return to prison to get the treatment required for their illness. The evaluation concluded that the program met its goal of reducing the recidivism rate for this population by nearly 20 percent. The resulting savings in prison costs totals $337,649, which exceeds the $180,000 program costs by $157,649. Findings indicated that the program is effective in meeting its goals.
