Corizon staff at Wyoming Honor Farm, a Corizon facility, showed support for National Condom Day on February 14th by wearing badges: No Glove, No Love! They have partnered with the Wyoming Department of Health to help educate incarcerated populations about risk factors that contribute to sexually transmitted diseases and the importance of disease prevention.

Once an inmate discharges the prison system they are provided with safer sex kits. These include several male and female condoms, lubrication and vouchers for free STD testing at their local public health department. The kit also includes information pertaining to the risk factors of tattooing.

Each inmate receives education from nursing staff regarding signs/symptoms of the most common STD’s, risk factors that contribute to STD’s and the importance of being tested for STD’s due to the high percentage that have no signs or symptoms, but are infectious. We encourage limiting partners and the use of a protective device such as a latex condom with all sexual encounters.

Corizon recognizes excellence in inmate patient safety as a journey, rather than a destination. We are always striving to enhance the quality of the healthcare we deliver, ever mindful of safety, efficacy and cost-effectiveness.
