Bird Flu situation in Ukraine
There is currently no serious threat in Ukraine. The Ukrainian health minister warned some time ago that Ukraine might be struck by bird flu on a larger scale. The virus spread originally in Crimea by migrating birds. The ministry stated they are making preparations for a potential outbreak including evacuation of people. The Ukrainian autonomy of Crimea was hit with a bird flu outbreak in November 2005. According to official data, laboratory tests have confirmed bird flu cases in 23 locations in the autonomy and more than 150,000 domestic fowl have so far been culled in 40 locations around the Crimean peninsula. More information is available on the WHO website.

Other threats
There is no specific threat or need for vaccination when you travel to Ukraine. The country struggles to provide proper care for HIV infected persons which at the moment receive little or no help. The crime rate in Kiev especially is very low. Beware of leaving your belogings hanging or lying unattended in restaurants as such thefts are quite common. Lately, there were a few race-related attacks, one aimed at a Jewish man, another against a person from Latin America. In general, avoid strolling around suburbs at night and Khreshatyk late in the evening when there is some event as people there get very drunk.
