Health Education Quarterly, v20 n4 p523-38 Win 1993
A group of 2,169 Hispanic-American injection drug users were given health education and counseling. Follow-up of 1,616 showed a significant increase in health knowledge, decrease in risky behavior, and more realistic perceptions of AIDS risk. HIV positive status was not a significant predictor of behavior change. (SK)
