HIV | Ukraine

the HIV epidemic in the Ukraine

Ukraine has Europe’s highest rates of new HIV infections. With the breakdown of the social and economic system in the early 1990s a drug epidemic started to flood the country. With the use of these drugs, HIV started to spread.

The ongoing war in Ukraine’s East accelerates the spread even more. Given the lack of financial resources, the absence of information and an inadequate health care system, HIV rates increase day by day.
