  1. HIV, heroin and heterosexual relations.

    Article - En anglais

    This ethnographic study describes part of the social context in which heterosexual transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) may be taking place.

    Based on interviews with sex partners of intravenous (IV) drug users in an urban, African American community of the United States, the study documents the personal experience of 35 men and women to show how living with one's own and/or one's partner's heroin habit may structure one's response to public health information and one's possibility of becoming infected with HIV.
