Reproductive Health, Reproductive Justice, and Incarceration in the US

January 15, 2019 -
7:15am to 8:15am

Abstract: This talk will describe reproductive health issues facing one of the most marginalized groups of patients in the US, incarcerated women. Their pregnancy, family planning, and other health needs are best understood within the broader framework of reproductive justice to emphasize the social and structural determinants of health that differentially affect outcomes for all patients.  At the end of this talk, participants will have an understanding of the reproductive health needs and reproductive justice issues of incarcerated women, of strategies for addressing them, and of why all women’s health care providers should be concerned about this group of women.
