Abstract

An efficient and cost-effective public health model for reducing AIDS- related risk behavior among injecting drug users and their sexual partners is emerging from data obtained from NIDA's multi-site National AIDS Demonstration Research (NADR) project. Long-term (18-month post-intervention) follow-up data from the Miami site demonstrate the durability of substantial risk reduction among project participants, related to both drug use and sexual behavior. Public health, drug treatment, and other health care providers should be aware of successful outreach intervention strategies and incorporate them into state and local AIDS prevention programs targeting out- of-treatment drug users and their sexual partners.
