      Hepatitis C epidemic sweeps NSW prisons

      Prisons in NSW are confronting one of Australia's fastest growing epidemics
      on a scale mainstream medicine has yet to face with 60 per cent of women and
      40 per cent of men in the state's jails infected with hepatitis C.

      There are now specialist hepatitis C clinics in each of the state's 29
      correction centres, providing and monitoring treatment and organising liver
      biopsies for prisoners - one of only three programs in the world providing
      such a comprehensive service.
