Drug Use Patterns among Thai Illicit Drug Injectors amidst Increased Police Presence. Werb D, Hayashi K, Fairbairn N, et al (2009)

Drug Use Patterns among Thai Illicit Drug Injectors amidst Increased Police Presence. Werb D, Hayashi K, Fairbairn N, et al (2009) Thailand has traditionally pursued an aggressive enforcement-based anti-illicit drug policy in an effort to make the country "drug-free." In light of this ongoing approach, we sought to assess impacts of enforcement on drug use behaviors among a cohort of injection drug users (IDU) in Thailand. We examined drug use patterns among IDU participating in a cross-sectional study conducted in Bangkok (n = 252). Participants were asked to provide data regarding patterns of drug use in the previous six months, including types of drugs consumed, method of consumption, frequency of use, and weekly income spent on drugs.

Expanding the Reach of Harm Reduction in Thailand: Experiences with a Drug User-Run Drop-in Centre. Kerr T, Hayashia K, Fairbairna N, et al (2009)

Expanding the Reach of Harm Reduction in Thailand: Experiences with a Drug User-Run Drop-in Centre. Kerr T, Hayashia K, Fairbairna N, et al (2009) Despite an ongoing epidemic of HIV among Thai people who inject drugs (IDU), Thailand has failed to implement essential harm reduction programmes. In response, a drug user-led harm reduction centre opened in 2004 in an effort to expand reduction programming in Thailand. Methods: We examined experiences with the Mitsampan Harm Reduction Centre (MSHRC) among IDU participating in the Mitsampan Community Research Project (Bangkok). Multivariate logistic regression was used to identify factors associated with MSHRC use. We also examined services used at and barriers to the MSHRC
