Drug control, human rights, and harm reduction in the age of AIDS - HIV/AIDS Policv and Law Review 9(3)

Abstract

Injection drug use is pervasive throughout the world and is associated with severe health and social impacts. Injection drug users (IDUs) suffer from disproportionately high levels of HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases, as well as overdose, and police violence. Overall, the evidence suggests that while IDUs do not enjoy adequate access to antiretroviral therapy and face additional difficulties in adhering to treatment, these challenges can be overcome with appropriate support.
