Summary

The purpose of this study was to clarify how widespread the health risk behaviours are in Dutch prisons and to identify ways to discourage such behaviours, thus enabling improvements to the disease prevention policies in the prison system. The risk behaviours investigated in the prisons are tattooing, body piercing and genital beading, drug and steroid injection, and consensual and non-consensual unsafe sex.
