Program purpose

The purpose of the Program is decrease in the illness rate and death rate from HIV infection/AIDS, provision of high-quality and available services in prevention and diagnosis of HIV infection, first of all to representatives of groups of the increased risk of infection of HIV, services in treatment, medical care, leaving and support of the people living with HIV within reforming of health care system.

Questions of counteraction to HIV infection/AIDS is one of the priority directions of state policy in health sector and social development and subject of the international obligations of Ukraine in the sphere of counteraction to HIV infection/AIDS, in particular on goal achievement of development, proclaimed in the Millennium Declaration of the United Nations, and accomplishment of the Political declaration of 2011 of the United Nations on activization of efforts for eradication of HIV infection/AIDS.

Today the epidemic situation is characterized by the high level of spread of HIV infection among representatives of different national groups, first of all persons belonging to group of the increased risk of infection of HIV, preferential damage of faces of working-age, uneven spread and change of the main way of transfer of HIV with parenteral on sexual. Epidemic of HIV infection is factor of negative impact on able-bodied population of Ukraine and leads to negative social and economic consequences.

From registration of the first case of HIV infection in 1987 till January 1, 2013 in the country 223 530 cases of HIV infection (from them 36830 children up to 14 years), including 56382 persons with disease AIDS are registered (from them 1224 children up to 14 years). The number of the people living with HIV and being under observation in healthcare institutions makes more than 129 thousand people, indicator of prevalence of HIV infection - 283,6 of the person on 100 thousand population, at more than 24 thousand people living with HIV, the disease reached final stage - AIDS. The indicator of prevalence of AIDS constitutes 52,9 of the person on 100 thousand population. For the period observations from 1987 to 2012 of 28498 people died of the diseases caused by AIDS. According to estimative data, at the beginning of 2012 230 thousand people aged from 15 years living with HIV lived in Ukraine make percent 0,58 from total quantity of the population of the specified age category.

At the same time as a result of accomplishment of the Nation-wide program of ensuring prevention of HIV infection, treatment, leaving and support of HIV-positive people and patients with AIDS for 2009-2013 the tendency to stabilization of epidemic situation is observed, in particular the indicator of rates of surplus of new cases of HIV infection decreased (with percent 16,8 in 2006 to percent 3,6 in 2011), the number of cases of HIV infection in age group from 15 to 24 years (since 2775 in 2005 till 1647 in 2012), decreased almost six times (with percent 27,8 in 2004 to percent 4,7 in 2009) the indicator of transmission frequency of HIV from mother to the child decreased.

Despite significant progress, quantity of the registered HIV infection cases annually increases, at the same time the access level to services in treatment, especially among representatives of groups of the increased risk of infection there is HIV, is low and consequently, the mortality rate from AIDS remains high.
