MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. The HIV epidemic in Russia may run out of control from 2020 if the scope of infected people is not extended, Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova told a governmental healthcare conference on Friday.
"Current treatment funding allows us to provide with treatment some 200,000 of HIV-infected people, which is 23%," Skvortsova said. "Even if we manage to extend the number of those provided with treatment to 30%, in 2020 the number of HIV-infected will grow by 250%, so the epidemic will be out of control."
The minister said that the rate of those getting treatment must not be lower than 60-80%
"We may expect the reduction of HIV epidemic in two or three years if the scope is 80%," she said, adding that more active use of Russia-manufactured medicines and technologies is one of the ways to settle the situation.
