A decline in HIV-infected needles returned to New Haven's needle exchange program : client shift of needle exchange ?
The New Haven needle exchange program experienced a significant decline in the fraction of returned needles containing human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1) proviral DNA.
Is this decline due to the operations of the needle exchange or to a shift in clients ?
Analysis of demographic and behavioural data revealed that only one variable, the race of participating clients, changed significantly over time.
However, HIV-1 prevalences in needles given to Whites and to non-Whites were not statistically different.
