Summary Russia has the fastest growing HIV infection rate in the world. An epidemic that, ten years ago, could have been relatively easily contained, is now threatening to engulf the country. But how has the crisis reached such alarming proportions? Sex, needles and roubles takes us on a journey to the cold winter nights of St. Petersburg, where we meet some of its young drug-addicted prostitutes. Through poignant real-life stories and interviews with corrupt policemen-pimps and discriminating doctors, the scale of Russia's problem slowly shifts into focus
