Abstract

"Peer education for HIV prevention among injecting drug users (IDUs) is becoming an increasingly important area of prevention activities. This paper surveys what has been published and discussed about peer education among injecting drug users, concentrating on outreach education, the development of IDU groups or drug user organisations (DUOs), peer education carried out by these groups, and differences between formal peer education programmes and community development activities which foster informal or everyday peer education."
