Half of the Chandigarh's drug addicts share needle, reveals study

There is a high risk of HIV spreading rapidly among injecting drug users (IDUs), a study conducted by the School of Public Health of Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, has found. The study found that about half of the drug users interviewed for the study confirmed that they had been sharing injecting needles.

The study was published in latest issue of Indian Journal of Public Health Research & Development. Under the study carried out among adult IDUs identified for targeted interventions by UT's State Aids Control Society, a total of 115 IDUs were selected; however, data could be collected only from 92. All IDUs were males. They were interviewed by the researchers for data collection.

The study noticed that there was rise in HIV positive cases among the IDUs in Chandigarh. About half of the respondents (49%) had shared injecting needles in the past. But 17.4% had done so during the last month. A total 53% percent of IDUs had physical relations with
female sex workers (FSWs), and 12% had sex with another man.

The study also found that physical relations with non-regular partner was significantly higher (87.5%) among those who shared injecting needles. The study observed that IDUs had not only unsafe injecting practices but their sexual practices were also mostly unsafe. Therefore, HIV prevention programmes should also emphasise safe sexual behaviours, along with safe injection practices.

Worrisome figures

49% shared injecting needles
53% having physical relations with female sex workers
12% had sex with another man
27.3% had never used a condom

I love how when they put
A pic up of a pic
It's something I would never
Stuck in my arm
Jfc if that's all there was as far as
Pics I'd would would never
Shoot dope
Scare the kiddies
Scared to death
No reason why
Do one another
To get me by
Think about the things I said
Read the page it's cold and dead

I'll use a barrel with a 30g luglock if I have too. I have a bunch of those 30g's laying around for that reason. Still in the package though which puts it a step above the OP article. Hay shit works.

That looks like the needle I use to IM with (25-27 gauge, 1 - 1-1/2" length). The barrel is a bit bigger, though because I use the standard 1mL.

Shit's scary.  Scary and all too real.  The worst kind of scary situation.   :(
