Helping Drug Users Get Into and Stay in HIV Medical Treatment and Care

People with HIV are living longer, healthier lives because of advances in HIV treatments. However, living longer also means that people with HIV must cope with the effects of the disease itself and side effects of the drugs used to treat it.

Many people with HIV also have other significant medical conditions, such as viral hepatitis or diabetes, or mental illnesses. This picture is even more complicated for IDUs because they must grapple with their drug addiction as well.
