Russian Duma Rules to Allow HIV Patients to Adopt Children in Their Care

Russians living with HIV will be able to legally adopt children living with them under new legislation passed on Tuesday.

Russias Constitutional Court ruled last year that preventing HIV-positive families from adopting children who already live with them was unconstitutional. The changes were anticipated as part of Russias broader state strategy to combat the epidemic that has led to the deaths of 318,000 Russians over the past 30 years and to reduce stigma.

The bill, which aims to allow people living with HIV, hepatitis С, tuberculosis and other diseases to adopt children “in already established family relations,” passed its third and final reading in Russias State Duma on Tuesday.
