Filetype[PDF-2.62 MB]

  • Alternative Title:
    Provisional data from the 1988 National Health Interview Survey
  • Description:
    NPIN 9593: This journal article presents the results of a study of drug abuse and the risk of AIDS. The study looks at how the relationships of IV-drug use to HIV infection varies by gender, race, and ethnicity, as well as by geographic location and culture. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) initiated a major intervention effort targeted at street injecting drug users (IDUs). The resulting National AIDS Demonstration Research Projects (NADR) focus both on IDUs not in treatment and on their sex partners. From these, study subjects were randomly selected in the South Florida area. The sample is multiethnic, but predominantly Black and male. The survey examined their knowledge about AIDS and its relationship to IV-needle sharing behaviors. Although knowledge was high, most continued to share needles. Sexual risk factors were also examined.
