ScienceInsider: Russia ditches plan to increase spending on HIV/AIDS
“The Russian Health Ministry has decided that the country cannot afford to spend $1.2 billion that was supposed to go toward ramping up the response to its burgeoning HIV/AIDS epidemic. RBC, a respected Russian news agency, broke the story, which subsequently was reported by the English-language Moscow Times. The money would have helped both slow HIV’s spread and treat infected people with antiretrovirals over the next four years…” (Cohen, 1/25).
