Distribution of condoms or promotion of family values: what methods of prevention of HIV will approve in Russia?


The Ministry of Justice wants to toughen control of NPO with foreign financing which are occupied with prevention of spread of HIV infection. They are wanted to be obliged to be provided on coordination of the program of the actions of the Photo: depositphotos.com Buses of Humanitarian Action fund leave nearly an every evening to the districts of St. Petersburg. Street prostitutes and drug addicts can receive condoms there, exchange the used syringes for new, pass a test for HIV. On this Humanitarian Action, as well as many other funds, receive money from the foreign organizations, for example from Elton John's Fund. The Russian State on such programs doesn't give money: at us treat distribution of syringes badly, considering that it promotes drug addiction. But why to oppose distribution of syringes and condoms and the approach of promotion of family values accepted at us?
