  1. What we have learned from Research about the prevention of HIV transmission among drug abusers.

    Article - En anglais


    After more than 10 years of experience conducting behavioral change interventions and with accumulated research results, several emergent principles have been identified for the effective prevention of HIV transmission among drug abusers.

    In August 1997, a symposium was held in Flagstaff, Arizona, to achieve two major purposes : (1) to synthesize the findings from HIV prevention research conducted to date for interventions targeting drug abusers and (2) to extract a preliminary set of prevention principles that could be linked to effectiveness across at least two or more studies.

    This chapter summarizes the key findings of that symposium.


    Major findings were abstracted from the conclusion sections of the presentations and from the chapters included in this special volume.

    Many consistencies regarding intervention approaches across studies were noted.

    These findings are discussed under the following headings :

    • General Observations,

    • Engagement,

    • Multiple Interventions,

    • Intervention Issues,

    • Methodological Issues, and Translation from Research to Practice.

    Suggested areas for further research are also presented and discussed.


    Ten principles that have implications for HIV prevention interventions emerged from this preliminary review of the research. (...)
