Conflict In Ukraine Increasing Country’s HIV Cases, NGOs Say

IRIN: How Ukraine’s war is driving up HIV infections
“…NGOs are warning that HIV infections are on the rise in eastern Ukraine, where nearly two years of conflict between pro-Russian separatists and government forces has hit prevention and treatment efforts. … About 30 percent of new infections were in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, now partially under rebel control, where tuberculosis … is also a major health problem. Due to the lack of data being gathered in rebel-held areas, there are no official statistics to support the anecdotal reports by NGOs that HIV infections are on the rise…” (Jovanovski, 2/23).
