MOSCOW, October 21. /TASS/. HIV’s prevalence in Moscow has been stable over the past ten years: in 2015 it grew by 8% but during the first nine months of 2016 doctors have been recording a decrease, head of the Moscow AIDS Center Alexei Mazus said in an interview with TASS.
Number of visits to Moscow hospitals in 2015 increased because of the continual inflow of patients from other towns, he noted. Mazur also said that Moscow was no different from other European capitals where people from smaller towns as well as migrants come in search for medical assistance.
According to the Moscow AIDS Center, men over the age of 25 are most often diagnosed with HIV in Russia’s capital. At the same time, a trend has emerged in the past few years of increasing number of women older than 28 getting infected. "This reflects the Western world’s trend of HIV getting older, when mature people who already have children, start risking their health and lead a promiscuous lifestyle, so they eventually get infected," Mazus explained.
