Fellowships for outstanding research in drug use and HIV awarded by IAS and NIDA
Date:7/12/2011

ere HIV prevalence among people who inject drugs is higher than 40 per cent in some countries. Use of other drugs, such as cocaine and methamphetamine, even without injection, is also associated with increased HIV risk behaviours.

"If you don't treat drug dependency, the likelihood of an individual being infected by HIV becomes higher. We need to treat drug users if we want to treat HIV," said Dr Volkow. "In fact, preventing and treating drug use is treating HIV."

Drug-related HIV/AIDS epidemics have followed the spread of cocaine injecting in Latin America and heroin injecting in Asia in the 1980s and the massive spread of injecting heroin and other opiates in Eastern Europe in the 1990s.

Overall growth in numbers of new HIV infections has slowed in most regions of the world. One exception to this trend, however, is the continued growth in numbers of HIV infections linked to injecting drug use, especially in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and more recently, sub-Saharan Africa.
