In order to identify, in a sample of heroin intravenous drug users (IVDU), those factors associated with the predominant risk behaviour related to the transmission of HIV-1 infection-sharing of injection equipment-a cross-sectional survey was carried out in Valencia, Spain from 1987 to 1992.
Informed consent and pertinent data were obtained from 3755 heroin IVDU recruited at two public AIDS Information Centres in two cities in the region of Valencia.
Data were gathered on sociodemographic variables, and sexual and drug use behaviour by interview.
The subjects were subsequently tested for HIV-1 antibody.
A univariate analysis was carried out to identify variables that were significantly associated with sharing injection equipment.
