The Lure and the Loss of Harm Reduction in UK Drug Policy and Practice by Neil McKeganey

A key issue in shaping drug policies is the choice that has been posed between two targets, between the prevention of HIV transmission and the prevention of drug abuse. Preventing the physical disease of AIDS has now been given priority over concern with
drug problems,

In this paradigm prevention takes on a new meaning - the key prevention task is not the prevention of drug use, but the prevention of HIV infection and transmission. [Stimson 1990: 333-334]
