abstract

  • Despite considerable progress in the design, implementation and refinement of interventions, infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and subsequent acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) has only become a more entrenched pandemic, reaching into populations originally not deemed to be at risk. Adolescents are one such population. While the overall incidence of HIV has been declining in the USA, the opposite pattern has been true for adolescents, particularly those who abuse alcohol and other drugs (AOD).
