KIEV, UKRAINE – AUGUST 12: A view of Kiev Aids Centre hospital number five, it the best facility for Aids patients in the Ukraine on August 12, 2005 in Kiev, Ukraine. The hospital has some of the latest equipment but has enormous recruiting problems for qualified doctors. Low salaries and a fear of Aids amongst health professionals mean that these facilities are currently under-utilised. The salary of the top doctor at the facility is $200 a month, a sum she considers well paid by local standards. Many young people who qualify as doctors in the Ukraine seek other employment as a result of the low salary scale offered by government medical facilities.
