A Technical Brief HIV And Young People Who Inject Drugs
PDF File Size: 1.92 MB | Download   
According to joint estimates by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), an estimated 12.7 million (8.9 million-22.4 million) people globally inject drugs, (8) around 80% of whom live in low- and middle-income countries. (9) The age distribution is not known. The continued high prevalence of injecting drug use, combined with insufficient coverage of harm-reduction programmes, is of concern because of the strong association of unsafe injecting with risk for transmission of HIV and other infections such as viral hepatitis. (10,11) Although global coverage of harm- reduction services has slowly increased, there is a lack of services focused on and accessible to young people, despite low ages of initiation into injecting drug use in many countries and important differences in vulnerability and risk between younger and older people who inject drugs. Consequently, young people who inject drugs find it difficult to obtain information, sterile injecting equipment, drug dependence treatment, including methadone treatment for opioid dependence, and HIV testing, counselling and treatment.
