In 2015-2016, he began coordinating and preparing a strategy to combat the spread of HIV in the Russian Federation, using his designated expertise for the Russian parliament. In 2016, he developed an app for HIV-positive people, which has received support from several organisations and has reached more than 15’000 users. Subsequently, he founded the non-profit organisation Life4me.plus to fight AIDS, Hepatitis C and Tuberculosis in Switzerland. Life4me+ organised the local information and education campaign "U=U" ("Undetectable equals untransmittable") in Eastern Europe and Central Asia region, aimed at disseminating information that an HIV-positive person with an undetectable viral load cannot transmit the virus to another person sexually.
