Abstract

The lives of drug injectors have most often been described as if they were uniformly experienced by men and women. Closer attention to the pattern, content and style of a drug injecting lifestyle reveals that gender and expectations of gender appropriate behaviour have a good deal of influence on the ways in which drug injecting is experienced. The mediating influence exerted by gender on injectors' lives is also evident in the HIV-related risk behaviour of men and women injectors.
