Caption

Drug abuse. Close-up view of two hands sharing a hypodermic syringe, representing addiction to an injectable drug and the dangers of disease trans- mission. Self-injection by hypodermic syringe is typical of the way a drug addict administers heroin. The sharing of a syringe or needle also adds to the risk of transmitting infectious blood- borne diseases. Both hepatitis B and the HIV virus (responsible for AIDS) may be spread by the sharing of a syringe among drug users.
