Russian Government’s Actions On AIDS Fall Short, Doctors, People Living With HIV Say

PRI: While the Russian government looks away, AIDS spreads quickly
“…AIDS has plagued Russians for decades, but stigma around the disease has been heightened by a government that prefers to pretend it doesn’t exist, activists say. [Dr. Yelena Orlova-Morozova, one of Moscow’s leading HIV doctors for the region’s state clinic,] opened AIDS.Center as a way to fight the disease. … Also, the Kremlin proposed doubling the budget for all state AIDS clinics in 2015, but that hasn’t happened yet…” (Nemtsova, 8/30).
