Publication Abstract

Sawitri, Sagung, G.M. Sumantera, D.N. Wirawan, Kathleen Ford, and E. Lehman. 2006. "HIV testing experience of drug users in Bali, Indonesia." AIDS Care, 18(6): 577-588.

The objective of this study was to examine the experience of drug users with HIV testing in Bali, Indonesia.

The users' experience with testing highlighted the importance of pre- and post-test counselling that provides clear information, confidentiality and assistance in developing social support.
