dc.description.abstractPrison inmates are the only population in the United States with a Constitutional right to healthcare, but should this entitle them to receive organ transplants? Current consensus emphasizes the importance of using only medical criteria to determine a patient's transplant eligibility, avoiding consideration of incarcerated status. This project raises the question whether the conditions of confinement jeopardize an inmate's post-transplant survival benefit measure such that a patient's incarcerated status qualifies as medical criteria. The comparison between current literature and inquiry of prison health professionals reveals a significant incongruence in our understanding of this issue, a lack of concrete data to support a finding, and an indication that further research is vital to definitively answer this question.
