Abstract

It was reported that most inmates need support to improve their quality of life and health conditions in order to break away from their previous cycle of illegal behavior while they were in prisons. The aim of the study is to propose a conceptual model that examined the relationship among prison environment, quality of life and health status among drug abuse inmates. In this case, the measurement of quality of life was measured using maqasid Syariah approach which comprised of five elements namely, religion, life, mind, lineage and wealth. This study labeled the construct of quality of life as maqasid Syariah quality of life (I-QOL.Literature found that prison environment had a significant effect on health status. Moreover, studies that examined the relationship between quality of life and health uncovered positive relationships between the two constructs. However, there were limited studies that examined series of dependence relationships among prison environment, quality of life and health status simultaneously, especially among inmates. Therefore, this study proposed a model that examined the relationships among these constructs. The proposed model will be validated using structural equation modeling. The study expected to uncover a positive relationship between prison environment and health status. Whilst, quality of life played the role of mediating variable in the relationship between prison environment and health status. The findings of the study would provide insightful information pertaining to the different aspects of prison environment and I-QoL that would improve the drug abuse inmate health status.
