Abstract

"The follow up to The Hidden Epidemic Revisited, carried out four years later and broadened to cover the whole Asian region including south Asia, found enormous changes in many areas. The challenge presented by The Hidden Epidemic Revisited now is twofold: the introduction of sufficient innovative and effective programs for HIV prevention among injecting drug users, and the scaling up of the response to meet the scale of the epidemic."
