  1. HIV infection in females dependent on drugs.

    Article - En anglais

    One hundred and seventy-one drug-dependent females in a drug rehabilitation centre were studied to estimate the prevalence of HIV infection among them.

    Twenty-four (14%) were positive on the Western Blot test.

    The presence of HIV infection was significantly correlated with syphilis (p<0.03) and age (p<0.001) ; 83% of those who were HIV positive were intravenous drug users.

    The need for harm reduction programmes to prevent spread of HIV infection among injecting drug users is stressed.
