Study Summary
  • Crack user population in Brazil is more impoverished when compared to the overall alcohol and drug user populations, with high prevalence of HIV and syphilis.
  • The drug user is still marginalized, has less access and suffers many barriers to HIV counseling and testing, and STI treatment services.
  • Health services present initial reluctance in providing access to treatment for this population.
  • It is evident that there is need to sensitize and build the capacity of public health services for proper reception and treatment of this much vulnerable and marginalized populations.
