People who use heroin commonly spend time in prison. Contact with treatment services after release from prison is important for reducing the risk that released heroin users will return to regular drug use.
This study compares the cost-effectiveness of centre-based compulsory rehabilitation (CCT) for substance abuse with community-based methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) in Hai Phong City, Vietnam. The project forms the basis for Thu Vuong's PhD.
Methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) can prevent heroin use among women but regular methamphetamine use has no pharmacological treatment and could result in treatment failure. This study aims to identify whether brief cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is effec
This project will use HCV surveillance data to describe the epidemiology of hepatitis C virus (HCV) among people incarcerated in state prisons in Pennsylvania, United States.
The aim of this project was to collate data for all countries on the following variables; imprisonment rates, HIV prevalence among male, female, PWIDs, MSM, sex workers and transgender prisoners, HIV incidence and transmission in prison AIDS mortality in prison and the provision of eight HIV pro
The Reference Group to the United Nations on HIV and Injecting Drug Use was established in 2002 and provides independent advice to the United Nations system on matters related to injecting drug use and HIV.
The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) project provides comprehensive and comparable data on mortality and loss of health due to diseases, injuries and risk factors for all regions of the world.
To facilitate research and training to minimise the harms from drug use and to increase the effectiveness of drug treatment internationally.
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is highly prevalent among incarcerated people around the world, largely due to the high concentration in correctional settings of people who inject drugs.
In 2000, a national commitment has been made to expand access to antiretroviral (ARVs) in Vietnam. However, the number of patients infected with HIV in need of ARV has far exceeded the supply of ARVs. Little has been done on cost and effectiveness of antiretroviral treatment in Vietnam.
