HIV transmission among drug users is typically associated with injecting drug users who oftentimes share needles or syringes. Risky behavior has been defined here as needle sharing behaviors, unprotected sex with various partners or sex workers. Risky sexual behavior associated with the drug use also contributes to spread HIV.

HIV and Injecting Drug Use in Selected Sites of the Terai, Nepal. Peak MJ, Rana S and Rai LB (2001)

HIV and Injecting Drug Use in Selected Sites of the Terai, Nepal. Peak MJ, Rana S and Rai LB (2001) During the preparatory visit in December 2000 two regional specific key persons (RSKPs) were identified in Hetauda and Damak to coordinate with the 6 of the 8 locality specific key persons (LSKPs) in the eastern part of Nepal. The methodology undertaken was to conduct two group meetings; one with current injecting drug users and one key stakeholder organizations (government and non governmental sector). With the exception of Kakarbhitta (only IDU group) and Pokhara (extra female IDU group) all groups were convened on time. Representation in each of the groups ranged from 10 to 20 individuals and lasted approximately 2 to 3 hours. The majority of drug use and injecting drug use estimations were derived by nomination techniques and differences were noted according to the key stakeholders and drug user group discussions.

HIV Prevention in Hong Kong Strategy Series: HIV Prevention in Drug Users- Principles of Strategy. AIDS Prevention and Care Committee and Hong Kong Advisory Council on AIDS (2001)

HIV Prevention in Hong Kong Strategy Series: HIV Prevention in Drug Users- Principles of Strategy. AIDS Prevention and Care Committee and Hong Kong Advisory Council on AIDS (2001) The importance of injecting drug use as a route of HIV transmission is well- recognised. Explosive increase in HIV infection among drug users has been continuously reported in several regions, including the southern provinces of Mainland China bordering Hong Kong, and other countries of South-East Asia. Due to a number of factors, such as the wide availability of different modalities of out- patient and residential treatment programmes and the easy access to disposable syringes as well as early intervention since the discovery of the first HIV positive case in 1985, Hong Kong is fortunate enough to have enjoyed an exceedingly low HIV rate associated with injecting drug use (IDU) in the past decade and half. However, more recent analysis of epidemeological data collected in 1999 and 2000 have provided a signal of alarm, calling for reexamination of our strategies of prevention and intervention.

Injecting Drug Users and HIV/AIDS: Information Needs and Research Methods. Jenkins, C (2001) Injecting drug use is one of the major factors in the increasing spread of HIV today in the Asian region, as well as the Middle East, South America, and in the CIS. There are many gaps in available information needed to guide a comprehensive response to the needs of IDUs, in general, and to the growing HIV epidemic among IDUs in particular.

The Asian Harm Reduction Network: Supporting Responses to HIV and Injecting Drug Use in Asia. UNAIDS (2001)

The Asian Harm Reduction Network: Supporting Responses to HIV and Injecting Drug Use in Asia. UNAIDS (2001) In the past two decades, many countries in the Asian region have witnessed dramatic changes in drug-use patterns, with more individuals switching from smoking to injecting. These changes have resulted in the deterioration of the health status of drug users. Newer and more potent forms of drugs have flooded the Asian markets, and there has been a rapid increase in the numbers of drug users all across Asia. Legal and social impediments to needle and syringe availability have caused users to inject with inappropriate equipment in unhygienic circumstances. We have begun to see ugly wounds and abscesses among the injecting drug users (IDUs) and a rapid increase in the numbers of drug users infected with hepatitis B/C and HIV.
