HIV Testing for the street children

HIV Testing for the Homeless

17-year-old Yuri, who is homeless, gets tested for HIV in this mobile clinic in Kiev. Yuri is one of the estimated 100,000 children living or working on the streets in Ukraine and mobile clinics such as this one provide food, drinks, blankets and condoms along with HIV testing. Prevention efforts such as these are critical for the homeless and other vulnerable populations, who are at greater risk of being infected or affected by AIDS. The program, which is financed by the Global Fund, has provided more than 160,000 health checks since it started.
