Technical difficulties unavoidably delayed the launch of this eHIV Review newsletter issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this delay may have caused.
People who inject drugs (PWID) account for nearly 10% of new HIV infections. With the rate of injection drug use continuing to rise, the need for effective interventions to break the injection/infection cycle has become increasingly important. How effective is PrEP among PWID? What barriers prevent this population from receiving the HIV prevention services they need?
In this eHIV Review Issue, Dr. Jessica Taylor from the Boston University School of Medicine and Boston Medical Center analyzes the recent literature that investigates these critical questions.
