Yes, if you share drugs with other IV drug users using the same works then that would be an exposure.

Yes he can,,, because after the laboratory conditions, syringe is the only place where HIV can survive outside its host. If you are living in any developing country, always insist to show the syringe in packing and get it unpacked in front of you.

Illegal recycling of the disposable syringes is common in many parts of that world due to inadequate arrangements of needle breaking after use. In my country, used medical equipment contributes significantly in spreading hepatitis B and C plus a small percentage of HIV

i think when injecting a chemical (except IV drug abuser) into body blood cant come upside(in needle) and on the surface of needle hiv cant survive.  So i doubtful that Hiv cant transmit in this way.

coz while injecting the chemical(except IV drug abuser)  preasure stay outside the syringe and coZ of  outside pressure blood didnt come inside the needle.  
Ru agree with me?
