Recent reviews of access to treatment and care among injecting drug users (IDUs) in low-income and middle-income countries revealed a disproportionately low coverage of IDUs by HIV testing, treatment, and care. Central Asia and Kazakhstan are experiencing one of the most rapidly progressing IDU-driven HIV epidemics in the world, and have a particularly low coverage of IDUs by HIV testing, treatment, and care programs.
