Abstract

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.
