Opportunities for AIDS prevention in a rural state in criminal justice and drug treatment settings.
Symposium on Rural/Urban Continuum. Lexington, KY, USA, 1996/10.
This study examined the likelihood that drug users would receive HIV/AIDS prevention information and supplies (e.g., condoms and bleach) in the rural state of Kentucky.
Despite evidence of high HIV risk among criminal justice and substance-using populations, incarceration and substance-user treatment were only minimally associated with prior HIV prevention exposure or HIV testing.
These data strongly support the use of criminal justice and treatment settings to provide AIDS prevention interventions for the high-risk drug-using populations they serve, and to target HIV prevention services in rural as well as urban areas.
