Erratum

Erratum to: J Immigrant Minority Health DOI 10.1007/s10903-007-9051-0

In this article (in this issue), the first author’s name should have been displayed as “Patricia Case” rather than “Case Patricia.”

The sequence of authors as displayed was incorrect. It is correct here: Steffanie A. Strathdee is the senior (last) author as she is the PI of this study.

In addition, on the page containing Table 2, paragraph 2, in the second column of text, the sentence:

“In both cities, heroin was cited as the most frequently injected drug, with stimulant combinations following: in Cd. Juarez (heroin and cocaine combination – 83%) and in Tijuana (heroin and methamphetamine combination – 25%) was most commonly reported.”

should now read:

“In both cities, heroin was cited as the most frequently injected drug, with stimulant combinations following: in Cd. Juarez (heroin and cocaine combination – 39%) and in Tijuana (heroin and methamphetamine combination – 25%) was most commonly reported.” Note that 83% is in error, and should be reported as 39%.

Springer regrets the errors.
