The statistics on HIV in Russia in 2013 were studied and compared with the blood service data. It was found that among different contingents the minimum detection rate of HIV infection has been registered among blood donors. Maximum detection rate of HIV among men, who have sex with men, actualizes the need for a ban on their participation in blood donation. The detection rate of HIV among donors, as well as the ratio of detection of HIV among donors and other categories surveyed indicate a lack of efficiency of formation of donor contingent of supporters of a healthy lifestyle. A direct positive correlation of HIV was detected in blood donors and region population, the volume of blood processing, as well as all volumes of blood wastage due to markers of blood borne infections except the volume due to HBs-antigen.
