This study was designated to assess and compare sex risk behaviors for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) transmission of three drug user groups: injectors who do not smoke crack, crack smokers who do not inject, and injectors who also smoke crack.
Sexual risk behaviors for HIV were assessed among 246 drug users from Denver, Miami, and San Francisco.
Respondents were classified into the three drug groups based on self-report and verified through urinalysis and physical inspection.
An increased risk for HIV through sexual transmission was associated with crack cocaine use, particularly among those who also injected.
