In April 2013 NHS England became responsible for commissioning all health services for people in prison in England. Healthcare in prison has a very important role in identifying significant health needs, maintaining health and detecting chronic conditions. This guideline supports equivalence of healthcare in prisons, a principle whereby health services for people in prisons are provided to the same standard, quality and to the same specification as for patients in the wider NHS. Providing equivalence of care will aim to address health need, reduce health inequalities, prevent deterioration, reduce deaths due to natural causes and subsequently assist rehabilitation and reduce re offending. This approach takes into account the differences in client groups to support improved take up of services and contribute to health improvement of people in prison.

This review concluded that treating intestinal nematode worms in children leads to significant improvements in weight gain and growth.
