Drugs and HIV-AIDS in the neighborhood.

Abstract in spanish

The following visual ethnography addresses the marginal-radical everyday life faced by Puerto Rican drug addicts in Hartford, CT, and socio-cultural, political, legal, and economic that harbour and reinforce their potentially incurable risks in HIV/AIDS. The information presented here, both quantitative and qualitative, comes from the Syringe Access, Use, and Discard: Context in AIDS Risk study conducted by the Hispanic Health Council, in collaboration with the Yale University and University of Massachusetts Schools of Public Health, and funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

Keywords: visual ethnography,drugs,diseases,everyday life.
