HIV/AIDS in the transitional countries of eastern Europe and central Asia

Donoghoe, MC; Lazarus, Jeffrey LU and Matic, S (2005) In Clinical Medicine 5(5). p.487-490
Abstract
In the 1990s, HIV/AIDS became a major threat to health, economic stability and human development in countries in eastern Europe and central Asia. Social, political and economic transition exacerbated the structural conditions that allowed HIV/AIDS to flourish as dramatic changes led to increasing drug injection, economic decline and failing health and healthcare systems. There is a need to address the professional and ideological opposition - even in countries considered to be fully functioning democracies - to evidence-based public health interventions like harm reduction, coupled with treating HIV/AIDS for all those in need, if countries are to provide a more effective response.
