People who inject drugs are at risk for HIV, Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and Hepatitis C virus (HCV) through sharing needles and drug-preparation equipment. Sharing needles or works like spoons, cookers, cottons, ties, or water can transfer blood from person to person. When you are under the influence, you’re also more likely to make risky sexual decisions, which can increase your risk for getting HIV.
