  1. Behavioural risk factors and HIV infection drug users at detoxification clinics in Puerto Rico.

    Article - En anglais


    The ethnic and geographical variations of AIDS prevalence among injection drug users (IDU) have highlighted the need to understand the role of the relevant risk factors in specific subpopulations of IDU.

    In this study we examine the factors related to seropositivity among IDU entering drug detoxification facilities in metropolitan San Juan, Puerto Rico.


    From October 1990 until August 1991,390 IDU were interviewed.

    Four groups of risk factors were examined : sexual practices, drug injection behaviours, risk behaviours while in US Mainland cities, and while incarcerated.
