Contributing Factors to Poor Health Among Incarcerated Women: A Conceptual Model
This article presents a conceptual model that depicts the relevant factors that explain why incarcerated women are generally in poor health. These factors include oppressive societal ideologies and practices, personal behavior, and the environments of prisons and jails, all of which have profound effects on health status. The interrelationships among these factors are explored, and implications for research and program planning are provided.
