DRIVE (Drug Use and Blood-Borne Infections in Vietnam): Combined Prevention and Care to End the HIV Epidemic Among People Who Inject Drugs in Haiphong, Vietnam
Funded by: National Institute on Drug Abuse
Project dates: July 2016 - May 2022
Principal Investigator: Des Jarlais, Don
PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Injecting drug use is driving many HIV epidemics in low and middle-income countries. This study will utilize large respondent driven sampling surveys to identify HIV+ persons who inject drugs in Haiphong, Viet Nam, followed by strong peer support to link them to HIV care and reach viral suppression. The goal is to reduce population viral load, reduce HIV incidence, and “end the HIV epidemic” among persons who inject drugs in Haiphong.
