Double Trouble: Injection Drug Use and Sexual Behaviour. Bhattacharya A, et al. (2015)


Findings from a cross-sectional qualitative study of HIV vulnerabilities among People Who Inject Drugs and their sex partners in Bihar and Manipur, India.
The study is one of the first qualitative comparative studies to seek an in-depth understanding of the vulnerabilities to HIV acquisition among PWID in the states of Manipur and Bihar. The study also aims to describe the factors that influence vulnerability to sexual transmission of HIV between PWID and their sexual partners. Additionally, the study focuses on logistical issues associated with the delivery of various harm reduction services to PWID and their sexual partners, as the quality of services offered to these groups has not been adequately documented in the past.

Keywords: HIV, PWID, needle/syringe, harm reduction, stigma, discrimination
