Resumen

Globally, there are 11 million people estimated to be in prison. Research has shown that morbidity is linked to chronic diseases. Sports can be an effective intervention for the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases. We recommend that sports practice programs be implemented in prisons. Future studies should focus on cost-effectiveness as a measure of promotion, prevention and treatment.
