Discrimination Fight

CHINA released its very first report on AIDS discrimination last week, showing that 40 percent of infected people had been subject to AIDS-related discrimination

A quarter of medical workers as well as over one-third of government officials and teachers hold negative attitudes or discriminate against these HIV-infected people, showed the survey conducted by UNAIDS, the Social Development Research Institute of the Party School and Positive Talk Project of Marie Stopes.

The fear of being discriminated against prevented people from getting tested and accessing treatment, said Vice Health Minister Huang Jiefu.
