UKRAINE-HEALTH-POLITICS-HIV-AIDS-PROTEST

Three HIV-infected patients of the specialized Lavra hospital in Kiev remain handcuffed to the steel frame of a bed as they start an unlimited protest against a government decision to force the closing and relocation of the HIV patients care unit, on September 12, 2013. The three patients and some employees of the unique Ukrainian hospital unit are protesting the Ukrainian government's decision to close the unit and relocate it outside of the city center saying the new location does not fit the standards for proper treatment. Ukraine has one of the fastest growing HIV/AIDS epidemics in the world. AFP PHOTO/ SERGEI SUPINSKY (Photo credit should read SERGEI SUPINSKY/AFP/Getty Images)
