We identified patients with "injecting-related" infections as those with a relevant infection in the primary diagnostic field and "mental and behavioral disorders due to opioid use" (F11 *) in any other diagnostic field, because most PWID
in the United Kingdom inject an opioid (9).
By examining patterns in these ties, and comparing them to what we might expect from random distributions of the same data, we uncover systematic clustering and between-group social boundaries that potentially influence disease spread among PWID

The Department of Health has alerted the NHS of the possibility of PWID
presenting to emergency departments and walk-in clinics, with symptoms suggestive of anthrax.
The article by Hannah Wilson and Joanne Bryant looks at perceptions of risk for hepatitis C transmission among PWID

in Iran, Lebanon, Morocco, and Tunisia.
