* Health and Social Services Model Helps Russian Families with HIV
* 시간: 2분 42초

Weeks old and already at risk. Born to mothers living with HIV … these are the youngest faces of Russia’s AIDS epidemic. But in this paediatric ward in Chelyabinsk - their needs are well anticipated.

SB (Russian) Irina Kastyan, Director Paeditric Ward No 8:
Here we can begin therapy in a timely fashion, before clinical evidence of infection. This means the child does not get terribly sick and doesn’t look any different from any other child.

Disciplined mother-to-child transmission preventative measures ensure that nearly all of these babies will stay HIV negative … but many are still vulnerable to other diseases – as well as to social stigma and family neglect.

An industrial city located on an active drug-trade route, Chelyabinsk has one of the highest rates of HIV infection in the nation. City officials have embraced many initiatives to help lower it.

SB (English) Tigran Yepoyan, UNICEF HIV/AIDS Project Coordinator: This region has quite responsive health care authorities, education authorities and social care authorities. That’s why we started to cooperate with them

Across town from the paediatric ward is an unusual kindergarten. Nearly all of these children began life in Irina S.

ward. Half are living with HIV … and all are healthy. But their parents, many of them drug users, are unable to care for them and so they live here from Monday morning to Friday evening.

Sergey Avdeev is the director of Compass, a social service center financed by the city to provide counselling and legal support to the families dealing with HIV. He has known these children all their lives … and counts their parents among his first cases.

SB (Russian) Sergey Avdeev, Director, Compass: When these kids first came here, some of them didn’t know how to hold a spoon, couldn’t eat couldn’t converse. So it was really hear that they learned to walk and talk. Right?

UNICEF supports Compass and its partners at the kindergarten and hospital to promote closer ties between health and social services in Chelyabinsk … and empower more mothers to care for their children … from the very first day.
