ABSTRACT
Aim: To describe the epidemiological profile of female detainees in the Brazilian state of Paraíba. Method: This is a transversal study, with descriptive and quantitative approaches, performed between July and October 2012, in female penitentiaries. The sample is composed by 227 subjects. The data was collected through a questionnaire and analyzed based on descriptive statistics. Results: The women were mostly from the Brazilian state of Paraíba, between 18 and 28 years old (52.4%), incomplete Middle School level (59%), single (54.2%) and with children (82.4%). Drug trafficking (28.4%) and association to drug trafficking (13.3%) were the main causes of imprisonment. It was also seen that 29.5% work and 28.2% study in prison; 25.9% have diagnosed diseases and 18.1% have medical support. Discussion: The unfavorable epidemiological conditions precede, and maybe lead to imprisonment.
