This study utilized David Gil's framework to analyze the Prisoner Protections for Family and Community Health Act in the state of California. Assembly Bill 966, the Prisoners Protections for Family Act, was developed in 2013 to minimize the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases in prisons (Lucas et al., 2011). Under AB 966, the CDCR is required to make condoms available to all five-prison facilities in California by 2015. By setting up discrete condom dispensing machines prisoners will have access to measures to help protect their health. This analysis considered the cost effectiveness of the law, correctional health care, protective and risk factors, as well as the exceeding representation of minorities in the prison system. This study reviewed prior legislation about this issue, and prison condom distribution internationally and within the United States. The analysis of this policy can potentially help social workers understand the prison dynamics surrounding safety, sexuality, and homophobic views that are present in the system.
