HIV Prevention Among Drug Users:
A Resource Book for Community Planners & Program Managers


The HPDU Resource Book reflects the efforts of many researchers, community planners, and program staff who are working to develop and evaluate effective approaches to decreasing HIV transmission related to drug use. Each part of the book includes a list of references and resources used in its development. A complete bibliography appears at the end. We want to acknowledge all those individuals whose continuing efforts have made possible the assembly of such a rich body of information and support for HIV prevention programs for drug users, and their sex partners and children.

We particularly wish to acknowledge the guidance and assistance of CDC staff critical to the development of this document: Linda Wright-De AgŁero PhD, MPH; Ronald O. Valdiserri MD, MPH; T. Stephen Jones MD; John Miles MPA; and Mary Willingham. Special thanks go also to Joyce Neal PhD, of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, for her technical advice. Other CDC staff who contributed their scientific and programmatic expertise include Jim Buehler PhD; Janet Cleveland MS; Sue Dietz RN, MA; Lynda Doll PhD; Melanie Duckworth MA; Martin Fishbein PhD; Melinda Lockner; Robert Moran; and Beth Wolfe.

The insights of three external reviewers contributed greatly to the content and presentation of the final document: Pat Franks from the Institute for Health Policy Studies at the University of California at San Francisco; David Metzger PhD, from the Centers for Studies of Addiction at the University of Pennsylvania; and Beth Weinstein MPH, from the Connecticut Department of Public Health and Co-Chair of the project's Consultant Panel. In addition, David R. Holtgrave PhD, from the Center for AIDS Intervention Research at the Medical College of Wisconsin, provided comments and suggestions on earlier drafts.

Members of the project's Consultant Panel, who provided initial guidance and direction to the document, include Panel CO-Chair Richard Elovich, Alma Candelas MPH, Mark A. Colomb MA, Nancy H. Corby PhD, Victor Hunter, Rosa K. Lewis EdD, Joyce Perkins MS, Reverend Margaret Reinfeld, Rick Talley, Robert T. Trotter PhD, and Imani Woods. Ex-officio panel members included Warren W. Hewitt, Jr., from the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment; Barbara Garcia and Edwin Craft from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration; Steven W. Gust PhD, from the National Institute on Drug Abuse; and John Gustafson, from the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors. A complete list of panelists and their affiliations, including field reviewers and ex-officio members, appears in Appendix E. Finally, we would like to acknowledge the contributions of Duiona Baker, Senior Health Policy Legislative Analyst, and Adolfo Mata Reyes, Acting Associate Administrator for AIDS, of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
