There is much that is right and pertinent about this volume, which is the eightieth in the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Research monograph series, but the title is misleading. The real story presented here is about how to prevent the spread of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection. Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The title should be “The Relationship Between HIV Infection (AIDS) and Needle Sharing Practices Among Intravenous Drug Abusers.” This book is based upon papers and discussion from a technical review which took place in May 1987, sponsored by the Division of Clinical Research, NIDA, but it was not printed until a year later and became available in early 1989.
