The global environment for a response to HIV has shifted substantially towards a massive scaling up of prevention, treatment and care interventions. In particular, the world made an unprecedented commitment during the United Nations Special Session on HIV/AIDS in 2001 to halting and reversing the epidemic by 2015. In support of this, additional resources to fund an expanded response have been come available through the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
Countries face the challenge of translating these commitments into practical programmes, including a range of comprehensive interventions to address HIV transmission related to injecting drug use. Although a huge body of scientific literature details the effectiveness of interventions, public health professionals often experience difficulties in accessing and interpreting this knowledge base.
This publication, together with other Evidence for Action technical papers, aims to make the evidence for the effectiveness of selected key interventions in preventing HIV transmission among injecting drug users accessible to a policy-making and programming audience. The interventions reviewed range from providing information and sterile injecting equipment to the impact of drug dependence treatment on HIV prevention. Each publication summarizes the published literature and discusses implications for programming with a particular focus on resource-limited settings. [Preface]
