China Making ‘Great Strides’ Against HIV But Must Do More To Prevent Sexual Transmission

“…To the credit of the government and international health agencies, China has made great strides in HIV/AIDS prevention and control over the past decade. … Interventions to reduce risks for sexual transmission have nevertheless not been successful. Cases attributed to unsafe sex continue to increase,” Yanzhong Huang, a senior fellow for global health at the Center for Foreign Relations, writes in the center’s “Asia Unbound” blog. “…As HIV/AIDS is spreading from the most-at-risk population to the general population, it becomes even more difficult for the government to track HIV/AIDS cases and further bring down new infections” (1/31).
