This chapter reviews the Russian Federation's response to its HIV epidemic. The Russian experience has particularly demonstrated: that Russia's infectious disease control measures not only violate human rights but are ineffective in limiting the spread of HIV; that case-finding surveillance in itself is not HIV prevention and can be misleading; and that punitive legislative approaches in the absence of accurate information about the epidemic and education of people at risk serve to increase stigma, make the most vulnerable people even more difficult to reach and raise the risk of further HIV infection in these groups.
