The average monthly rate of new HIV infections among drug users in the nation’s capital dropped by about 70 percent after the District implemented a needle exchange program in 2008, according to a study that was released Thursday. On average, new HIV cases arising as the result of drug users sharing needles dropped from about 19 new infections per month before needle exchanges became available to fewer than six after the program was implemented, the study’s authors said. Overall, that amounted to 120 “averted” HIV infections over a two-year period.
