The Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is widespread and on the increase in Iranian jails.
Prison authorities have expressed anxiety and declared that the virus is a real threat to the lives of the inmates. A large number of the inmates have tested positive for the AIDS virus.
The repeated and communal use of hypordermic needles among drug users in prisons has been the main source for the spread of the disease.
