Head of Rospotrebnadzor, Chief Sanitary Doctor of Russia Anna Popova in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta called The regions in which the largest number of HIV-positive citizens are recorded. The leader of the list was the Sverdlovsk region, and the Orenburg region was included in the top five leading regions of the country.
The general list of “leaders” for the incidence of HIV includes: Sverdlovsk, Irkutsk, Kemerovo, Samara, Orenburg, Leningrad, Chelyabinsk, Tyumen, Novosibirsk regions and the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area.
– Leading by no means the capital. Why? Yes, because in the 1990’s it was these regions that were on the road to drug trafficking. Most of the infections occurred through a dirty drug syringe. It is now hammered. The main carriers of HIV infection are people between the ages of 30 and 45, and this is not an accident. Among men aged 35-39 years, more than 3% live with an established HIV diagnosis. And this, in fact, the gene pool of the country. What is most sad is the age of not only love, but also active labor, intellectual activity, – Anna Popova told an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
As early as 2015 Rospotrebnadzor compared with the epidemic the situation with the spread of HIV in the Russian Federation. Prior to this, the Minister of Health Veronica Skvortsova predicted that the HIV epidemic in the country could get out of control 2020 . Premier Dmitry Medvedev openly admitted that in some Russian regions there are interruptions in the supply of medicines and test systems. At the same time it was announced that about 1% of Russians live with HIV, while thirty% infected do not know about the disease.
Literally in March, alarming indicators at the next meeting of the City Council of Orsk voiced to the east Orenburg region .
– I received a confidential document according to which the incidence in Orsk is 1.5 times higher than in Orenburg, and in the eastern zone it is almost 8 times higher than in the western zone. The analysis shows that about 2.07% of the population is affected by HIV infection. In fact, these are the numbers of the epidemic, “said deputy Vladimir Kogan, the chief doctor of the city hospital No. 4
