I have been an activist in the fight against HIV since 2000.

In 2007 I founded the first and only mutual aid group for people living with HIV in Ivanovo, which is still active today. In 2008 I and a group of like-minded individuals founded the charitable foundation “House of Hope (Dom Nadezhdi).” Our priority is people living with HIV and socially stigmatized infections. Today we work with women who have mental health issues, and among them there are many who have survived domestic violence and broken down.
