Annotation: This chapter discusses the current and unique problems facing female inmates with HIV infection or AIDS.
Abstract: The discussion focuses on demographic, epidemiological, and social factors that are making incarcerated women among the fastest growing groups of persons with AIDS. The unique problems of female HIV-infected inmates are discussed in terms of their physical and psychological aspects. One promising theoretical approach to slowing the spread of HIV infection among this population is the AIDS Risk Reduction Model (AARM), which is comprised of three distinct stages, i.e., labeling, commitment, and enactment. Policy recommendations are outlined in terms of case management approaches, counseling, inmate health service delivery, and post- release services. Community corrections also offer several advantages for women offenders who develop symptomatic AIDS. 3 notes and 47 references
