Crime, Drugs and Health Problems Face Vancouver's Downtown Eastside
Date:7/14/2009

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The city of Vancouver is one of the most beautiful and vibrant cities in all of Canada, and will soon be hosting the 2010 winter Olympics. Vancouver is recognized worldwide and has an international reputation for many things.

The B.C. Center of Excellence in HIV/AIDS did a study on intravenous drug users and discovered that 62% were mostly men and 65% were Caucasian, all between the ages of 15 to 58. It was also reported that three quarters of these men have been to prison and two thirds of them were on welfare. Many people in Vancouver look at this as a crime problem, while others see it as a health problem, but the majority see it as both. Criminal activity and poor health are major problems facing many who live or operate in the downtown eastside. A 2003 study done by the Vancouver Police and Simo
