November 8, 2010
Iran has responded to the threat of an HIV epidemic among injecting drug users. There is growing concern, however, over the potential for bridging HIV infection from IDUs to other populations, including men who have sex with men, noted the authors of the current study.
From 2003 to 2004, cross-sectional biobehavioral surveys were conducted among 370 IDUs recruited from drug treatment centers, a drop-in center and streets in drug-populated areas of Tehran.
