Abstract

Although the association between the use of needles and syringes by drug users and transmission of virus infection was noted as far back as 1958, suggestions for prevention of this mode of transmission have only recently been widely published. Until recently, official schemes to distribute clean equipment or advice about sterilizing existing equipment have not been established. This intervention strategy is clearly an attempt to divert widespread dissemination of HIV infection among parenteral drug users and more specifically to attempt to prevent epidemics similar to those recorded in Edinburgh, Milan and New York (Robertson 1988)
