Services for Re-entry Populations: Policy Evidence and Recommendations

America is facing multiple, often intertwining epidemics – including mental illness, substance use disorder, mass incarceration, and fragmented health care systems that are often inaccessible. For those caught in the intersections of these epidemics, the impacts of the current COVID-19 pandemic are even more destructive and deadly.

Incarcerated people experience these epidemics with greater frequency than the general population. The reduction of the jail population and process of community re-entry represent both a risk and an opportunity. CHIPTS developed a policy brief entitled Services for Re-entry Populations: Policy Evidence and Recommendations that looks to HIV, a pandemic predating COVID-19, in order to draw broader lessons for addressing the needs of incarcerated populations in the United States during re-entry.
