Samara was selected for a PLACE study to gain more information about the populations at high-risk of acquiring and transmitting HIV. Samara oblast is among the top 10 oblasts in the Russia Federation with a high incidence of HIV infection. The city of Samara has higher rates than those of the oblast. Understanding who is at-risk of infection will aid in the development of prevention programs.
