  1. HIV risk of transmission behaviour amongst HIV-infected prisoners and its correlates.

    Article - En anglais

    Thirty-eight from a total of 47 known HIV-positive prisoners in the Irish prison postern voluntarily cooperated in a survey of psychological attitudes, knowledge of risk behaviour, intentions with respect to future risk behaviour, and actual past risk behaviour.

    Of this group, 65% reported that this had put others at risk of HIV, since they became aware of their own HIV+ status.

    Only 16% stated that they would definitely not share their drug-taking equipment in the future and 32% that they would always use a condom in sexual intercourse.
