Prevention of transmission of HIV, hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, and tuberculosis in prisoners. The prevalence of HIV, hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, and tuberculosis are higher in prisons than in the general. population in most countries worldwide. Prisons have emerged as a risk environment for these infections to be.   The spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection has reached pandemic proportions. Hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV) viruses, although predominantly blood borne can also be transmitted sexually with several studies pointing towards enhanced spread of HCV along with HIV.
