  1. Fulltext. Are HIV-infected injection drug users taking HIV tests ?

    Article - En anglais



    Knowledge of infection is essential for human immunodeficiency virus-type 1 (HIV) treatment initiation and epidemic control.

    This study evaluates infection knowledge among infected injection drug users, particularly those infected with HIV-1.


    A total of 180 injection drug users entering treatment in Contra Costa county, Calif, were examined.

    Clients were tested with unlinked (blinded) tests and simultaneously counseled and offered voluntary confidential HIV-1 antibody testing.
