IMPROVING THE HEALTH OF INDIGENOUS AND NON-INDIGENOUS EXPRISONERS: A MULTI-JURISDICTIONAL, MIXED-METHODS STUDY
Grant number: 1002463 | Funding period: 2012 - 2016
More than 50,000 people are released from prison in Australia each year. Ex-prisoners experience high rates of mental illness, chronic disease, social disadvantage, drug dependence and premature death, yet we know almost nothing about how to improve their health outcomes. This project will identify key health issues for Indigenous and non-Indigenous ex-prisoners and generate evidence-based responses, simultaneously improving health and reducing reoffending among this highly marginalised group.
