Substance Use and Risk of HIV, Hepatitis, and Other Infectious Diseases

Substance Use and Risk of HIV, Hepatitis, and Other Infectious Diseases 

Substance use is associated with increased risks and prevalence of HIV, hepatitis, and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). According to the World Health Organization (2016a), of the 2.3 million people worldwide that are co-infected with HIV and the hepatitis C virus (HCV), over 60% (1.4 million) are injection drug users. Untreated substance misuse can delay identification and treatment of STIs including HIV and hepatitis and increases the risk of transmission to others. Substance misuse can reduce the efficacy of HIV and other STI treatments and can increase progression of HIV disease. This course will show you the scope of the problem and present you with evidence-based tools to identify and address substance misuse in the populations you serve. You will learn about available treatments for HIV, hepatitis, and other STIs as well as how alcohol and other drug use can interfere with treatment adherence and efficacy. This course is suitable for healthcare professionals including providers in primary care, family planning, community health programs, mental health and substance use disorder treatment programs, and hospital-based programs.
