This chapter reviews China's response to its HIV epidemic. It urges the government to initiate strong programmes of health promotion throughout China, using all the sophisticated means of communication available; promote cross-ministry cooperation with joint planning groups at each level, with an emphasis on the involvement of civil society, non-governmental organizations, and local businesses in health planning; increase the overall investment in health from its current 5.3 percent of GDP and place it mainly in training and preventive health; and improve the legislative framework and protection of vulnerable people and those most at risk for HIV infection.
