Ukraine is experiencing one of the most severe HIV/AIDS epidemics in Europe and the former Soviet Union, with an estimated 230,000 people aged 15 and over living with HIV at the beginning of 2012.

Evidence suggests that the number of newly-registered HIV cases in the country is stabilizing and HIV incidence among people who inject drugs is also stabilizing.  However, HIV transmission to the sexual partners of IDUs and into the general population remain areas of great concern.
