  1. Cross-national studies of AIDS among injecting drug users.

    Article - En anglais

    HIV infection among injecting drug users has become a world-wide public health problem.

    This raises fundamental questions about the modifiability of drug-using behavior and of the influence of different national settings upon the modification of drug use behavior.

    Data from the World Health Organization Multi-site Study of HIV and Injecting Drug Use and studies of HIV among drug injectors in New York City (the US component of the WHO study) are used to address these questions.

    There is no clear relationship between HIV seroprevalence and current levels of risk behavior in the WHO cities, and the range in seroprevalence is much greater than the range in current risk behavior.

    Nonetheless, historical trend data enable us to discern at least two broad patterns in different cities.
