In 2000, the Task Force to Study Health Care Needs of Inmates in Transition from Correctional Institutions was mandated (Chapter 466, Acts of 2000). The Task Force will examine the scope of the problem of prison inmates released with health care needs. It will collect data to determine the correlation between health care needs of released inmates (with diabetes, human immuno-deficiency virus (HIV), viral hepatitis, substance abuse addiction, and sexually transmitted diseases) and the commission of crimes. It also will consider the availability of medication and health insurance, and determine the extent to which health care programs are accessible, available, and viable for those released.
