Persons Who Use Drugs (PWUD)

Strategies for Disease Prevention

These public health strategies are important to prevent the spread of disease among persons who use drugs. For example, outreach programs, in the community and on the streets, make available to persons who use drugs prevention and risk reduction, testing, and referral services. Recommended approaches, immunizations and screening, can protect the health of a person who uses drugs through medical interventions, while evidence-based behavioral interventions help prevent sexual and injection transmission by addressing risky behaviors.
