Behaviors associated with drug use are among the main factors in the spread of HIV infection in the United States.

Drugs can change the way the brain works, disrupting the parts of the brain that people use to weigh risks and benefits when making decisions. This can be especially dangerous for young people because the areas of the brain involving judgment, decision-making, and emotional control have not fully matured.

To inform America's youth about the important connection between drug use and HIV infection the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) launched The "Learn the Link" campaign.

The campaign includes the "After the Party" public service ads (PSA) where an HIV-positive teenager recounts the night she went to a party and under the influence of drugs and alcohol engaged in risky sexual behavior that resulted in HIV infection. http://hiv.drugabuse.gov/english/mess...
