    Two cross-sectional HIV seroprevalence sample surveys (SP-1 and SP-2) of drug users, including IDU at various stages of treatment.

    SP-1, a 10-week estimate of prevalence, was conducted by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) in their detoxification clinics from 5 January to 7 March 1988.

    SP-2 estimated prevalence in 1 week, 12-15 September 1988, in the same 18 BMA clinics.

    Both surveys included an administered questionnaire that gathered demographic and behavioral information.


    Analysis of HIV prevalence by clinic in both SP-1 and SP-2, and the relationships between demographic data, behavioral variables, arrest history and HIV positivity in SP-1.
