    Article - En anglais

    Tuberculosis (TB) is a rapidly growing problem among injecting drug users (IDU), especially those infected with human immunodeficiency virus.

    The authors review IDU's responses to current TB control strategies and discuss the implications of their findings for the proposed implementatioon of directly observed therapy (DOT), a method for ensuring that patients take prescribed medication.

    Field workers carried out 210 ethnographic interviews with 68 IDUs in a Brooklyn, NY, community during 1990-93.
