Sexual behaviour and well being of Australian prisoners

A/Prof. Juliet Richters

Prisoners are at risk for sexual ill health. On average they start having sex at an earlier age than other people, have more sexual partners and more unprotected sex, and are more likely to have done sex work. They are also an under-serviced and under-researched group. We used a computer-assisted telephone interview based on the Australian Study of Health and Relationships to survey a random sample of 2,351 men and women in prison in New South Wales and Queensland in 2006–2008.
