Social networks, drug injectors' lives, and HIV/AIDS by Samuel R Friedman( )

27 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 1,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social Networks, Drug Injectors' Lives, and HIV/AIDS recognizes HIV as a socially structured disease - its transmission usually requires intimate contact between individuals - and shows how social networks shape high-risk behaviors and the spread of HIV. The authors recount the groundbreaking use of social network methods, ethnographic direct-observation techniques, and in-depth interviews in their study of a drug-using community in Brooklyn, New York. They provide a detailed documentary of the lives of community members. They describe drug-use, the affects of poverty and homelessness, the acquisition of money and drugs, and social relationships within the group. Social Networks, Drug Injectors' Lives, and HIV/AIDS shows that social networks and contexts are of crucial importance in understanding and fighting the AIDS epidemic. These findings should revitalize prevention efforts and reshape social policy

Seeking to Make the World Anew is a collection of poems that confront the crisis of modern society, that yearn for change, and that wonder about what kind of social order might replace the one we have. This compilation serves as a testament of the author's agonizing encounters with the degradations, insults, and diseases that this world abounds in-and expresses his awe at how people come together and seek solutions through struggle
Alternative youth employment strategies project : final report by Susan Sadd( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Alternative Youth Employment Strategies (AYES) Project began as one of the demonstration projects funded under the Youth Employment and Demonstration Project Act in 1980. The program, which features three training models, is targeted toward high-risk, disadvantaged youth, especially minority youths from urban areas who had prior involvement with the criminal justice system. The three AYES models called for (1) a work experience program in which students worked together on community service-type jobs in crews under the direct supervision of AYES work site supervisors; (2) full-time vocational or academic training, including counseling, supportive, and job placement services; and (3) a rotating program of work experience and classroom training, with no period extending beyond two weeks. The AYES program provided 1,082 high-risk youths in three cities (Albuquerque, Miami, and New York) with employment training. Despite the many issues and complexities involved in assessing the program's effectiveness, it was possible to conclude that AYES was at least partially successful in its attempts to increase participants' employability and reduce their involvement with the judicial system. The most consistent and reliable finding was that participants were more likely to find employment at some time during the followup period than were members of the control group (51 versus 41 percent) and had higher mean weekly earnings ($63.16 versus $47.67). However, the program's hopes for improving the quality of employment for participants and changing their work attitudes turned out to be somewhat naive. (Appendixes include a detailed description of program implementation in the AYES project and methodological notes. Sixty-three data tables are in the document.) (MN)
The Community Vulnerability and Responses to Drug-User-Related HIV/AIDS, 1990-2013 [96 Metropolitan Statistical Areas, United States]( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Community Vulnerability and Responses to Drug-User-Related HIV/AIDS, 1990-2013 [96 Metropolitan Statistical Areas, United States] study (CVAR) was a research study of why large United States Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) vary over time in their vulnerability to HIV/AIDS among drug users and in MSA responses to HIV/AIDS. This collection contains estimates of HIV prevalence among people who injected drugs (PWID) and among sub-populations of PWID. This collection is comprised of ten datasets with differing amounts of variables and provides trend data that describe the following: •Epidemiologic outcomes including population prevalence of PWIDs and Non-injecting drug users (NIDUs), and particularly their prevalence among youth; and, among PWIDs, HIV prevalence, late-diagnosis HIV cases, and AIDS incidence and mortality. •Implementation of evidence-based drug-related interventions including drug abuse treatment, syringe exchange, HIV counseling and testing. •Implementation of non-evidence-based drug-related interventions including incarceration and arrests of drug users. The collection contains data on the MSA sub-populations including Black, Hispanic, White and "other" race categories. In addition, some statistics are presented in age range categories such as ages 15-29, 30-64 and 15-64
