According to current data of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine by the end of 2011 prevalence of HIV among pregnant women in Ukraine is under one per cent, which corresponds to the UNAIDS recommended definition of concentrated epidemic of HIV infection. As a result in the 2010-2011 Report Ukraine presents HIV prevalence rates based on epidemiological data collected among injecting drug users, persons engaged in commercial sex, men having sex with men, i.e., populations most at risk of HIV infection which currently remain the driving force behind the epidemic in the country. Data collected as a result of routine epidemiological surveillance of pregnant women in gynaecology offices demonstrates that in 2011 in Ukraine 0.47% of pregnant women among primarily diagnosed patients tested positive for HIV.
