Penza, 31 May 2015. PenzaNews. Sergei Oleinik, president of AntiAIDS civil society, assistant CMO at the Penza dedicated medical assistance clinical center, commented on the report of the regional Rospotrebnadzor department about the bad AIDS incidence rate at January-April 2015 and a diagnosed young person infected with AIDS.

“Just the other day, the Rospotrebnadzor department released the data about the growing AIDS incidence rate in the Penza region. That is no secret. It’s just that we first of all need to follow that very Rospotrebnadzor’s recommendation on possible ways to affect the epidemic,” he wrote in his LiveJournal on Sunday, May 31.
According to Sergei Oleinik, the situation would not improve without following the measures added to the roadmap two years ago.
“If the Penza region situation is defined by the central figures, we fight epidemic in Penza. If these are the drug addicts that affect the incidence rate in Penza, it is this demographic that we must target. If the AIDS prevention campaign for the drug addicts was shut down after 15 years, followed by growing AIDS incidence rate, that means this program and not chants on the importance of defeating drug addiction that worked. Any oaf should be able to understand that,” the medic added.
Moreover, two cases of AIDS in children under eighteen were detected during the first five months of 2015, he added.
“A seventeen-year old girl was diagnosed with AIDS after going to the hospital with pregnancy. She was infected through coitus. She became 18 two months after the diagnose, but the statistics has no mercy – she is an underage girl. If we take into account the fact she first had sex when she was 14 and did not use protection, and already got pregnant and used the abortion procedure several times, it all was expected. Moreover, she got pregnant from an intravenous drug addict. There was no way she could avoid the infection without any prevention measures,” the medic noted.
The other story of the two is even more dramatic, Sergei Oleinik added.
“A child born in 2011 got the infection from his mother, more likely at birth or with milk. It was diagnosed during a family inspection, when his mother ‘went for the second’ and was diagnosed with AIDS at the maternity clinic. Her husband, with whom she lives without a registered marriage, has no AIDS. Looks like she received the infection from her former husband, a drug addict, who more likely does not live in the Penza region. Or maybe he does. These ‘lost’ persons usually appear when it is their time to die. The soil of the Motherland calls for them,” he wrote.
Summing up his post, Sergei Oleinik explained there are many ways to get infected with AIDS during a coitus.
“Usually the women get infected by drug addicts, and have no idea they did. And the more drug addicts we locate, the more the rate will grow. And, as I wrote above, there are no good trends,” he stressed.
The president of the AntiAIDS civil foundation also pointed out that children are forced to suffer for carelessness of the adults and inaction of the authorities.
“Making noise about the importance of protecting children and making decisions on defending their health are different things. Shouting is always easier than working,” he elaborated.
Moreover, Sergei Oleinik called for the women to be wiser, as they should be by their nature.
“But it looks like the nature started making mistakes more often. The woman should remember her partner, not just her, also affects the health of her children, and the partner might just be out of his mind,” he wrote.
In conclusion of his LiveJournal note, the medic noted that children rarely get infected with AIDS, and the rate among them is stable year to year
“The situation with teenarges aged 15 to 20 is an entirely different mater. A total of 342 cases were registered since the beginning of the monitoring. 194 of them were diagnosed in 200-2002, and 2001 was a bad year with 112 people throughout it. 34 cases among the teenagers aged 15-20 in 2000. 14 people in 2014. Should I add that most of these outbreaks were in Kuznetsk? But I must tell you that a similar outbreak already began in Penza,” Sergei Oleinik concluded.
