Effects of an Education-Oriented Intervention Program on High-Risk Behavior Among Intravenous Drug Users and Their Sex Partners
Previous studies suggest that intravenous drug users (IDUs) conform to a model of rational choice when provided with accurate information about therelationship of their behavior and exposure to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This paper addresses the issue of the impact of a set of education related interventions on the behavior of intravenous drug users and their sex partners. The data analysis shows the level of pre- and post-intervention knowledge of HIV risk associated with an assortment of needle and sex related activities. It also presents the estimated impact of the education-related interventions on the knowledge base about high-risk behavior and the pre- and post-intervention levels of these high-risk behaviors.
