according to the report, in different cities of the Russian Federation, the concentration of the epidemic varies. If in Voronezh only 3% of intravenous drug users infected with HIV in Irkutsk, the average is 57%, in St. Petersburg - 59%, and in Ekaterinburg - 64%. In General, in Russia the percentage of people infected with HIV among intravenous drug users is 24, 6 per cent. Another high figure, according to the UN, is celebrated in Ukraine (19, 7 %).

In Russia, this number is 80 deaths per million, say the authors of the report.


according to the authors of the report, one of the issues Russia is the fact that it passes through the so-called "Northern route" of drugs from Afghanistan. The report States that although information about the reduction of demand for heroin in Russia, the total number of seizures of shipments of drugs on the "North road" in 2013 decreased, which was due to more effective work by intercepting the supplies within Afghanistan itself. It is also noted that in Russia the process of replacing the heroin with cheaper alternatives - acetylated opium and desomorphine. Also, the UN experts emphasize the growth of cocaine use in Russia.

He Also noticed that it is necessary to make more efforts to shape attitudes about addiction As a chronic illness.

"There is no quick and easy cure for addiction, and we must invest in long-term, medical, scientific solutions" - quoted Fedotov in a statement to the UN statement.

according to the health Ministry, every year the number of new cases of HIV infection in the Russian Federation Usually increases by 10%, While at the beginning of 2015 the number of registered HIV cases was estimated at 730 thousand people. To change the difficult situation created by the draft state strategy for improving the diagnosis and treatment of HIV infection in Russia in the 2015-2020 year. As emphasized in the Ministry of health, the main objectives of this plan is to reduce the number of new HIV infections by 25% by 2020 and a reduction of deaths from AIDS by 30%.
