Congratulations to Dr. Don Des Jarlais, CDUHR Deputy Core Director, for being a 2015 NIDA Avant-Garde Award recipient! The project "Combined Prevention to Reduce Initiation into Injecting Drug Use" will use a multi-component HIV prevention intervention study in New York City and Tallinn, Estonia to reduce the number of drug users who transition to injection drugs. NIDA Avant-Garde awards are intended to stimulate high-impact research that may lead to groundbreaking opportunities for the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS in drug users.

Fact Sheets

HIV and Aging: HIV-related Health Issues among Gay, Bisexual and Other MSM

Health issues for older adults with HIV are complex and multifaceted. Providers should address the psychosocial needs of this population, including stigma related to their HIV diagnosis and social stressors in their lives that may compromise their health. Read more about this study in our new fact sheet.

Alcohol & Marijuana Use - Adverse Psychosocial Outcome and Impact of Marijuana Legalization Among High School Seniors

Overall, adverse outcomes associated with alcohol and marijuana use tended to increase as the frequency of use increased, and there were differences by sex, race and ethnicity. Further research is needed to determine how rates of use change in light of rapidly changing policies. See more in our new fact sheet.
