The HIV story in Romania has been marked by several dramatic episodes. The first was in the late 1980s, when thousands of children became infected with HIV through a dramatic nosocomial HIV epidemic, predominantly among orphans and hospitalized children. The voices of parents and many supporters then led to the introduction of the country’s large treatment programs – early on with donor support – to provide HIV treatment to all in need.
