Infectious and chronic diseases are disproportionately greater among detained women than among women in the population at large. The overall punitive, male-based, one-size-fits-all approach to health care and the variant overall health care standards across correctional systems call for a new model of correctional health care. The assumptions, constructs, strategies, and future research implications of the restorative health care model are described.
