To enhance the prevention of human immunodeficiency virus infection, factors related to regular participation in the Amsterdam Syringe Exchange and the borrowing of syringes were studied in 131 HIV-seronegative injecting drug users in a 1989-90 survey.
A total of 29 percent of the users reported borrowing syringes, that is injecting drugs at least once in the past 4-6 months with a needle or syringe previously used by someone else.
Users at increased risk of borrowing are previous borrowers, long term moderate-to-heavy alcohol users, current cocaine injectors, and drug users without permanent housing.
