Data from the Federal AIDS Center of the Russian Federation estimates 1.4 million people are living with HIV in the Russian Federation (data for December 2019). About 535,000 people are receiving antiretroviral therapy. The number of the HIV tests increased dramatically during last few years and in 2019 it made more than 40,000,000 tests. In compare to the previous years the age group among new HIV cases has changed and now HIV prevails among people over 30 y.o. (84% of all new cases in 2019). HIV transmission remains highest among heterosexual relations (prevails) and injecting drug users (IDUs).
