China: Students in Beijing Call for Equality for AIDS Patients

May 21, 2012

Some 200 students from 21 universities gathered Sunday at Beijing's University of International Business and Economics to take part in a ceremony marking the 29th annual International AIDS Candlelight Memorial. "The campaign we launched this year is different from previous ones, as it is the first time we held the memorial on campus," said Ye Dawei, vice secretary-general of the China Red Ribbon Foundation, which held the gathering with UNAIDS and the China Alliance of People Living with HIV/AIDS. "I have learned more about the living conditions of AIDS patients by participating in the memorial service," said Wang Yuanyuan, a student at UIBE. In his remarks, UNAIDS official Guy Taylor said he hopes China will devote greater effort to protecting the privacy and equality of those living with HIV/AIDS.
