Amphetamines linked to high HIV risk

Melbourne, Dec 05 : People who injected amphetamines were more at risk of contracting HIV or other blood-borne viruses, a new study has revealed that.


The study by the Australian National Council on Drugs (ANCD) in co-operation with the Asia-Pacific Drugs and Development Issues Committee found users of amphetamine-type stimulants faced multiple HIV risks, News.com.au reported.

The report said that use appears higher among groups vulnerable to HIV such as sex workers, men who have sex with men, and young people.
