Singer Elton John has unveiled a charity project to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Ukraine, believed to be the worst in Europe.

The program — co-founded by the Elton John AIDS Foundation and a local anti-AIDS group — will allow homeless women who are at high risk of contracting HIV to be tested for the virus which causes AIDS.
