[Comment] Ending HIV epidemics among people who inject drugs in LMICs

In The Lancet, William C Miller and colleagues1 describe their feasibility study of a randomised controlled trial for an integrated intervention of individualised system navigation and psychosocial counselling and antiretroviral therapy (ART) for people who inject drugs (PWID) and are HIV seropositive in Kyiv (Ukraine), Thai Nguyen (Vietnam), and Jakarta (Indonesia). Participants in the control group were given standard of care as per their local site guidelines. As expected, the authors found that the intervention increased the proportion of participants who were virally suppressed and on medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for substance use, and reduced mortality compared with standard of care.
