    Article - En anglais

    A human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) intervention using indigenous outreach workers was implemented with Hispanic injection drug users (IDUs) and their sexual partners in three locations:

    • Laredo,

    • Texas;

    • San Diego,

    • California;

    • and San Juan,

    • Puerto Rico.

    A total of 2,169 subjects were contacted, given health education, HIV antibody testing, and follow-up counseling.

    This article reports on the 1,616 IDUs (75%) who completed the initial and follow-up interviews.

    The results indicated significant increases in health knowledge on AIDS, decreases in needle risk drug taking behaviors, some decreases in sex risk behaviors, and more realistic perceptions of personal AIDS risk.
