The World Health Organization said on Tuesday it will supply thousands of doses of life-saving antiretroviral drugs to Ukraine to cover the needs of HIV patients in the country for the next 12 months. WHO, along with the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Ukrainian authorities and other partners, has procured 209,000 packs of generic antiretroviral drug TLD. Ukraine has an estimated 260,000 people living with HIV, the second largest number in Europe after Russia, and prior to Moscow’s invasion around half of them were on antiretroviral treatment. Last month, the U.N. agency for HIV/AIDS warned that Ukraine was left with less than a month’s supply of drugs for HIV patients.
