San Bernardino Gets $27M to Assist Ex-Prisoners With HIV, Hepatitis
To better handle cases of tuberculosis, HIV and hepatitis, the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health has received nearly $27 million to connect with prisoners of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation immediately following their release, RedlandsDailyFacts.com reports. The health department will identify infected inmates at Day Reporting Centers—an intensive supervision program that reduces overcrowding—that will fully open in March 2012. The health department’s re-entry task force is still discussing other recommendations for setting up prisoners with medical care before their re-entry to life on the outside.
