CROI 2019 Seattle: Ricky Bluthenthal

Ricky Bluthenthal, Keck School of Medicine, USC, talks to us at the 2019 Retrovirus Conference in Seattle about the opiate crisis. “The opiate crisis is creating a series of infectious disease crises, HIV is part of that, and most of it is going to be driven by the uptick in transitions of people into injection drug use, which greatly escalates all of their health risks.”
