French President Emmanuel Macron urged not to forget about the AIDS problem, despite the coronavirus pandemic in the world.
“Thus, the health crisis has led to a dramatic decline in HIV testing. This is a big danger, because when you do not know that you have AIDS, you do not receive medical support on time, you endanger yourself and others, because you think less about precautions, ”the president’s publication says.
Macron urged citizens to make donations to combat the spread of HIV, as well as for scientific research.
In February, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova instructed the Ministry of Health and Rospotrebnadzor to work out the issue of conducting research on the effectiveness of vaccination against coronavirus in a group of people living with HIV.
At the end of 2020, she said that the rate of spread of HIV infection in Russia has slowed down, but this does not mean that they are not being detected.
