Druglink article 1988 – Groups for HIV positive drug users by Bill Nelles

Some drug users at risk of or with HIV/AIDS have been doubly let down: first by drug services; second by the gay self-help groups they turned to when the services failed to respond. Now groups are being formed by and in some cases specifically for drug users. Bill Nelles sets the scene, then we hear about three of these groups: Mainliners, Positively Women and the group at the Terrence Higgins Trust.
