This article examines the knowledge levels of incarcerated women in South African correctional centres about HIV and AIDS. It also discusses the way that women inmates should be treated with reference to their medical needs and HIV and AIDS status. Against this background the article reports on a case study of the attitudes of South African women inmates to sex, the risk of HIV and AIDS, and the treatment of HIV and AIDS while incarcerated. The article makes recommendations on how the treatment policy for female inmates could be improved. It also concludes that female inmates should be provided with more and better information about HIV and AIDS.
