    Article - En anglais


    To determine the prevalence of drug injection among drug users, the seroprevalence of HIV and risk factors for HIV infection among injecting drug users (IDU), and to determine heterosexual transmission of HIV among IDU and their spouses in southwest China.


    Using a cross-sectional design, we conducted an HIV seroprevalence and behavioral survey in three rural counties of Yunnan province, Ruili, Longchuan and Luxi in southwest China, bordering Myanmar (Burma).

    A total of 860 drug users were recruited in randomly selected communities at the three study sites (response rate, 97%). In addition, a random sample of 62 wives of HIV-infected IDU were assembled from 460 known HIV-positive IDU in Ruili and Longchuan (response rate, 81%). Results : In the sample of 860 drug users, 33% reported injecting drugs.
