Russian Civil Society Urges National Government To Destigmatize HIV/AIDS, Provide Better Treatment

Daily Beast: The Forgotten AIDS Crisis in Russia
“…[Anton Krasovsky, a leader of the AIDS Center working around Moscow and the Moscow region,] said that his AIDS center would do everything to push the Russian government to destigmatize the disease and reform its approach to HIV/AIDS. Thanks to civil movements and the effort of leading doctors, the Moscow Regional Center on AIDS managed to enlarge its facilities by more than 400 square meters. But even a 1,000-square-meter clinic was too small for the 39,000 people of the Moscow region with HIV and AIDS…” (Nemtsova, 1/18).
