This was a very good study but things did not go well from the beginning. As it is, it seems the stakeholders were not involved from the protocol development stage. Prevention of study participants is very important in any research. Not providing clean needles was not a good thing even though the researchers had to abide by the laws of the state. It would have been better if this was shared and discussed by various stakeholders before the study started enrolling.
HIV prevention package is very important was supposed to be looked into very critically by the research team, the sponsors and the stakeholders as it is an important part of the research.
