The spread of HIV among street children in Ukraine has reached levels of an epidemic

The latest detection of HIV among street teenages and youth in Kiev, Odessa and Donetsk has revealed that 18.4% of teenages in these cities were HIV-positive.

            Street girls is a small but very vulnerable group among street children and youth. ‘A lot of girls had sex with more than one partner at the same time, and at least once they were forced to have sex,’ - said representatives of Health Right International.

            The study, carried out by Ukrainian Foundation for Public Health, showed that 40% of women and young girls who live or spend much of their time in the streets and / or are HIV-positive have experienced sexual violence or were coerced into sexual relationships. 25% of them have experienced sexual violence in the age before 18 years. 50% suffered physical abuse. 74% experienced psychological abuse from relatives and friends. 100% of HIV-positive women were suffering from a disease associated with their abuse.

            As previously reported, in Ukraine, only 16% of HIV-infected persons are supported financially by international founds.
