AIDS is a significant public health threat worldwide. In many parts of the world, the use of injected drugs is a major mode of HIV transmission. Given the relationship between intravenous drug use and HIV infection, efforts must be made to reduce risks of infection among individuals and communities through advocacy and HIV/AIDS prevention programmes among drug users.
