Mobility of Scottish injecting drug users and risks of HIV infection.
Nine hundred and nineteen injecting drug users (IDUs) were interviewed in Glasgow, Scotland during 1990 and 1991, as part of a wider study of HIV risk behaviour, about their injecting and sexual behaviour outside the city in the previous two years.
Forty-five percent of respondents injected outside Glasgow, 6% shared needle and syringes (n/s) and 20% had sexual intercourse.
Much activity occurred outside Scotland but mainly within the UK, particularly London.
Predictors of n/s sharing outside Glasgow during the previous two years included current injecting with and passing on of used n/s and sexual intercourse with casual partners.
