Condom use among male injecting-drug users--New York City, 1987-1990



Condom use among male injecting-drug users--New York City, 1987-1990



Mmwr. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 41(34): 617-620



Heterosexual transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) continues to increase, especially among injecting-drug users (IDUs) and their sex partners. During 1991, 22% of women with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in the United States reported having had sex with a male IDU; this risk behavior was second to injecting-drug use (48%) as a transmission category for women. To better understand how to reduce heterosexual transmission of HIV, a study on condom use among male IDUs on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City, was conducted as part of CDC AIDS Community Demonstration Projects. This report summarizes the results of that study.
