Drugs and HIV - Triad Health Project

You can become infected with HIV or Hepatitis C if you share paraphernalia to drugs. When you share these "works," blood that is infected with HIV passes directly into your bloodstream.

You can also get HIV/AIDS or Hepatitis C if you are an IV drug user and have unprotected sex without a latex condom.

Protect yourself - get into treatment. If you can't:

  • Keep your own works
  • Don't share works
  • Clean all works every time you use them.
