Example text

At the end of 1999, there were 31,000 officially registered officially registered Russians infected with HIV. Wallander reported 315,000 officially registered HIV-infected persons. Arguably, while the growth rates could be viewed as a statistical artifact (any increase from a small number will result in a high growth rate), the spread of the disease in Russia over the last decade has been explosive. Although reliable numbers are impossible to come by (an issue that will be explored later), credible professional estimates are that the true number of HIV-infected Russians is in the range of one million.

By March of 1990, the situation had scarcely improved; only 25 percent of demand for disposable syringes was met, five percent by domestic production, and 20 percent by import (“AIDS in the USSR,” 1990; “Ministries Fail . . ,” 1989; Trehub, 1988, p. 5). 22 Murray Feshbach In sum, shortages of disposable syringes and needles plagued the period. Production planning was ineffective in responding quickly and efficiently to demand. As a result, the spread of HIV in hospitals from dirty needles and syringes was all but inevitable.

Even by buying foreign production equipment, they did not come close to meeting their own production plans, let alone the actual need for these products in the Soviet Union.
