An estimated 230,000 Ukrainians, or about 0.8 percent of people aged 15 to 49 in a population of 46 million, are living with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Some 120,000 are in urgent need of anti-retroviral therapy, which can greatly prolong and improve the quality of their lives. But due to a lack of funds, less than a quarter are receiving the drugs, one of the lowest levels in the world. Photo © Efrem Lukatsky/AP Associated Press
