Injecting risk behavior among drug users in Amsterdam, 1986 to 1992, and its relationship to AIDS prevention programs.
Serial, cross-sectional trends in injecting risk behavior were studied among drug users from 1986 to 1992.
From a cohort study in Amsterdam, 616 intake visits of drug users who had injected in the 6 months preceding intake were selected.
The proportion of drug users who reported borrowing and lending used injection equipment and reusing needles/syringes (in the previous 6 months), continuously declined from 51% to 20%, from 46% to 10% and from 63% to 39%, respectively.
