Description: In Ukraine approximately 8% of citizens are infected with hepatitis B and C, tuberculosis, and HIV. Despite this fact, until the year 2013, Ukrainians did not have access to treatment of Hepatitis C because of the failed establishment of a state-sponsored program. This video was created to illustrate the result of an organized patients’ action. They asked for help and to procure medicines for patients who will inevitably die due to the absence of treatment.
