Abstract

This article recognizes that injecting drugs is "the major driving force of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic in Northeastern India". The study conducted seeks to assess "the spatial distribution of locations where injecting drug users (IDU) congregate, as well as the risk behaviour and key characteristics of IDUs to develop new strategies strengthening intervention measures for HIV prevention in this region."
