Justice Health NSW screens and manages viruses and sexually transmissible infections, including HIV, hepatitis and influenza, within custodial and forensic mental health settings. People in custody have a higher rate of communicable diseases, which are diseases that can be spread from person to person.

Justice Health NSW teaches patients about the diseases, the risks of transmission and how to minimise the risks of getting these illnesses.

Justice Health NSW also manages infection control, disease prevention, health protection, immunisation programs, communicable disease outbreak management and environmental health and surveillance for patients in these unique environments.

Additionally, Justice Health NSW coordinates care and support for patients who report sexual assault.
