ABSTRACT
The article presents a study assessing self-reported health, quality of life, and access to health services in a sample of 908 male prisoners of Italy. It has been suggested by the study that prisoners have a perceived poor health status and specific care needs and health promotion programs are seldom offered by the authorities. The study also suggests that there is need for programs for correction of risk behavior and prevention of longterm effects of incarceration on prisoners' health.
