Abstract:  
Background and Aim: The outbreak of Corona pandemic in late 1398 and its spread in 1399, in addition to health and medical dimensions, has had wide social, economic, political and legal dimensions. The most important of these dimensions is the impact on the health of certain groups, including prisoners; Meanwhile, the detention centers for defendants and convicts face serious challenges. The present study examines the challenges facing prisons and detention centers in the Corona pandemic and identifies mechanisms to address it.
 
Materials and Methods: This research is of theoretical type. The research method is descriptive-analytical and the method of data collection is library and referring to documents.
 
Results: Given that inmates and others in related centers are most at risk for Covid-19 virus, the need to pay special attention to prisons and related centers and detention centers and how to manage them in the event of a corona pandemic requires the use of mechanisms. And special measures are taken according to the emergency situation.
 
Ethical considerations: In Order to Organize this Research, While Observing the Authenticity of the Texts, Honesty and Fidelity Have Been Observed.
 
Conclusion: Detainees charged with a crime and convicts who are in prison for a crime enjoy the same access to their basic rights as the right to health. Conditions in prisons and detention centers indicate that there is no necessary health infrastructure in prisons and detention centers, overcrowding in prisons and detention centers, lack of manpower in the field of health care in prisons, conducting clinical trials on prisoners, Problems related to the management system of prisons and penitentiary institutions and the lack of cooperation of prisoners and mental health problems of prisoners in the era of the corona pandemic are among the challenges facing the right to health of prisoners.
