Found this website while researching for a final and it relates to what we talked about earlier in the year in regards to HIV.

Prisons are the number one transmitter of HIV/AIDS and it is passed through drug injections, sexual assault/rape, sex, tattoo needles, and lack of contraceptives in prisons. Many of the inmates come from low-income schools and have not gotten access to sexual education. It is also likely that these inmates have not gotten access to any education (the school to prison pipeline). Most of them do not know what HIV/AIDS are or how it is passed so once they are released from prison HIV is passed.
