Written by researchers at a federally funded outreach program to combat the spread of AIDS, this book analyzes the efforts of the Miami Community Outreach Project to intervene in AIDS-related risk behavior among intravenous drug users and their sexual partners. The work provides background information on the history of AIDS, the risk behaviors of drug abusers, and federal intervention programs. It discusses the prevalence of the HIV virus in the Miami area and gives a detailed description of the project, discussing the theoretical basis for the project, the intervention strategies used, the rationale behind those strategies, and the results achieved. Appendixes provide information on the health of the subjects, the material used, and the Belle Glade Community Outreach Project modeled after the Miami project. The book begins with background information on the history of AIDS, the risk behaviors of drug abusers and their sexual partners, and federal attempts to combat the spread of AIDS.
