The social geography of HIV/AIDS among injection drug users in Brazil. International Journal of Drug Policy. Volume (Issue): 13(2) pp. Abstract. The paper addresses the socio-geographical spread of HIV/AIDS among injection drug users (IDUs) in Brazil, highlighting patterns and trends of the epidemic in different Brazilian regions. Many rural communities have experienced dramatic increases in prescription drug use that have led to increases in injection drug use, opioid overdose, and incidence of acute HCV, as well as potential for localized HIV and HCV outbreaks similar to the outbreaks in Scott County, Indiana.

HIV-experienced clinicians were more likely to specialize in infectious diseases (48% vs 6%, purban areas (96% vs 83%, purban-rural differences.   Opioid abuse is rising fast among those who live in rural areas. Research suggests the drugs' illicit use there spreads rapidly via social networks, which could be part of the solution, too.

Okie () described “a striking shift in the prevalence of fatal drug overdoses from urban to rural counties”. Higher non-.   Injection drug use was reported in all the study sites where heroin was in use. Similarly, a study of young multi-drug (alcohol, cannabis, tobacco, heroin, Valium, khat) users in Dar es Salaam found that 75% of the sample were using heroin, and that (%) of the sample reported injecting drugs [ 7 ].
