The purpose of this study has been to identify whether the themes inmates sexuality and sexual health are attended to in Oslo Prison. This based on the WHO definition of sexual health and the bio- psycho-social model. The selection of informants consisted of five employees with different educational backgrounds. Five qualitative interviews were conducted and they were all transcribed and analyzed. The survey shows that the themes sexuality and sexual health among inmates are not prioritized, with exception of a few specific areas. The reasons for the findings are many, including taboo, power relationships and the experience of lack of competence.
