Construction of schools for HIV-infected children going nowhere


Two schools for children with HIV in Kyiv may not come off. According to Kyiv officials it is the Ministry of Finance which is holding up the construction.

The money for these building has long been allocated from the State budget. The money has even been in the Kyiv account since the beginning of the year, however the city will only be able to receive it after agreeing things with the government institution.

The schools are planned for both sides of the Dnipro River. At present however, while they remain only a plan, HIV-infected children are deprived of any possibility of attending kindergarten or school since none will take them. 

There are at present 425 children thus affected.
