Potential development of community oriented HIV outreach among drug injectors in the UK.
Given the current epidemiological and behavioural risk profile of HIV infection among injecting drug users in the UK, the main strategic task continues to be to develop interventions to prevent the spread of HIV infection.
Outreach to drug injectors is an important part of wider UK HIV prevention strategy.
This paper reviews critically and reassesses practically the role of outbreach interventions among drug injectors in the UK.
It is argued that despite the development of innovative outreach activity, the full potential of outbreach has not been realized due to its theoretical orientation and inbuilt structural limitations.
