AIDS-related discrimination and human rights violations in Russia are widespread. The problems have been documented in a report prepared by the Russian NAMES Foundation, a national non-profit organization that provides services in HIV/AIDS awareness, offers social and psychological support to people affected by the AIDS epidemic, and advocates effective and non-discriminatory AIDS policies. The report is entitled AIDS-Related Violations of Human Rights and the Russian Legislation. The information presented in the report is based on testimonies by people with HIV/AIDS, their friends and families, medical professionals, state officials, workers at non-governmental organizations, and other citizens. The following is an edited version of the report.
