HIV and hep C survival in syringes
In 2007 researchers at Yale university developed a methodology for assessing how long HIV survived in used syringes, but until 2008 no test existed that could detect whether the hepatitis C virus had survived – so we could only speculate as to how long it survived.

With high prevalence, many had speculated that it could survive, and remain infectious, for long periods of time outside the body. This short documentary describes the findings of the hep C survival study, and explains what they mean for our understanding of why hepatitis C prevalence is so high amongst injecting drug users.
