HIV has emerged relatively recently in the Russian Federation (RF), in part because the strict controls on internal migration, significant barriers to contact with foreigners, and a relatively well developed public health system established during Soviet times have deteriorated (Field, 2004). Currently, the HIV epidemic is occurring within the setting of a true public health crisis in Russia. Heart disease, alcoholism, smoking and infectious diseases are increasing dramatically. It is estimated that the impact of these public health problems will fuel a one-third drop in the population of Russia by 2050 (Specter, 2004).
