Because people who inject drugs (PWID) frequently lack adequate information about HIV or HCV testing and prevention, or overdose prevention and response training, we propose to develop a Mobile Intervention Kit to deliver technology-based interventions from a library of theory-guided video content. This flexible tool will help service organizations to prevent overdose deaths and identify undiagnosed HIV and HCV, enabling clients to receive much needed treatment and avoid unknowingly transmitting infection. Our product is designed to help existing program staff reach an increased number of clients; and to improve public health by encouraging reluctant patients to accept important services they may otherwise decline.
