Drug prevention, addiction treatment and HIV/AIDS

HIV/AIDS Research

To address the devastating consequences of drug abuse and addiction, much of the research supported by NIDA is focused on three main areas: drug prevention, addiction treatment and HIV/AIDS. HIV/AIDS research focuses on 1) understanding the intertwined epidemics of drugs abuse and HIV/AIDS; 2) drug treatment as HIV prevention; 3) enhancing screening and referral to treatment among high risk populations; 4) reducing the disparate health outcomes for minorities who are disproportionately affected by the HIV epidemic; and 5) contributing to international efforts to reduce the spread of HIV.
