Country spends heavily on HIV/AIDS control
    2017-September-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Central Government spent 4.6 billion yuan (US$694 million) on HIV/AIDS control and treatment in 2016, a health official said Tuesday.

China has established an initial network of preventative services, in which government departments take the lead and the general public also participates, said Wang Guoqiang, deputy chief of the National Health and Family Planning Commission.

The network, covering both urban and rural areas, includes HIV testing, treatment and check-ups to prevent infected patients from transmitting the virus, Wang said at the 2017 National Conference on HIV/AIDS held in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province.

Wang, also director of the HIV/AIDS prevention and control commission of the State Council, said China has almost entirely prevented the transmission of HIV through illegal blood transfusions, the sharing of needles and mother-to-child transmissions.

“The rapid spread of the virus in some particular areas has been greatly contained, the quality of life of HIV carriers has been improved, and social discrimination against the group has been reduced,” he said.

According to official data, China had nearly 420,000 people infected with HIV and 300,000 AIDS patients at the end of June. More than 221,000 people have died of the virus since records have been kept.

Han Mengjie, with the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, estimated up to another 20 to 30 percent of HIV/AIDS patients are either not aware of their infection status or have not reported it, warning that the control of HIV/AIDS remains a challenge. (Xinhua)
