The United States incarcerates a higher percentage of the population than any other nation in the world. The cost to provide healthcare to inmates represents 20% or more of most states operating budgets. Inmates are, for the most part, less healthy than the non-incarcerated population of the US. This group engages in high risk behavior (e.g. drug use, violent behavior, unprotected sexual activity, etc.) at a higher rate than the general population and is less likely to seek medical attention prior to their incarceration.
