Preventing the spread of HIV among Australian injecting drug users.
Risks of drug abuse in a global context. Symposium. Berlin (DEU), 1992/09/15.
Control of HIV infection among and from injecting drug users is critical for the long-term control of HIV infection in Australia.
There is now consistent and strong evidence that the prevalence of HIV infection among Australian injecting drug users is still low.
Recent evidence suggests that Australian injecting drug users are reducing injecting behaviour associated with HIV infection.
Australia adopted harm reduction policies early and implemented a comprehensive range of programmes vigorously.
These were designed to reduce the spread of HIV infection in this population.
