The implementation of the GOOD HEALTH GOOD HEART project does not only support the integration and cooperation between various departments but also focuses on the benefits for the inmates that happen by being able to access and receive medical care. Therefore, the project urges the Ministry of Public Health and the Ministry of Justice to increase the efficiency in helping prisoners to have better access to medical and public health services in order to create content inmates, reducing anxiety about getting sick and also being a good example for other prisons throughout the country that are not yet covered by the project, as all inmates have an equal right to access medical treatment.
