  1. HIV testing and unreported HIV positivity among injecting drug users in London.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To assess the importance of community-recruited drug injectors with no treatment experience and no previous testing history when estimating HIV prevalence among drug injectors.

    Design

    HIV testing behaviour and prevalence were measured in a serial point prevalence study of drug inlectors recruited in community-based non-treatment and treatment settings.

    Methods

    Pearson's khi2 and Fisher's exact tests were used to measure differences between treatment groups and non-treatment groups in demographic characteristics, including age and length of injecting career, recent drug use, recent syringe sharing, uptake of previous HIV testing, confirmed HIV-antibody status by saliva and self-reported HIV status.
