Infectious Diseases in Correctional Settings

This year’s conference will focus on Infectious Disease management in the correctional setting. With medical, legal and public health experts, we aim to address the following: How do you operate and fund vaccination programs in multiple correctional health settings? How can you team up with a public health department? What are evidence-based ways to screen for and treat sexually transmitted infections? How can you manage an outbreak effectively/lessons learned from Covid-19? Given the overwhelmingly positive feedback from last year’s mock deposition, we are headed back to the courtroom, to help us think about and prepare for litigation in general, as well as infectious disease-related issues. We end the day with ACCP’s signature event: ACCP Talks to Our Patients. A panel of currently and formerly incarcerated patients living with HIV will answer audience questions about their experiences during incarceration and re-entry into the community.
