Shooting Up - Infections among injecting drug users in the United Kingdom 2002, An update: December 2003 01 Dec 2003

This is the first annual report to focus solely on infections among drug users in the United Kingdom - an indication of the seriousness of this issue. The report draws together the fruits of the wide-ranging collaboration between the Health Protection Agency, the Scottish Centre for Environmental Health (SCIEH), the National Public Health Service for Wales Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre, the Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre Northern Ireland, the Centre for Research on Drugs and Health Behaviours, Imperial College London, the Unlinked Anonymous Surveys Steering Group and others.

The aim of this work is to increase understanding of the distribution of infections and the types of behaviour which increase the risks of exposure to them.
