China: NGOs Play "Outstanding" Role in Fight Against HIV/AIDS: Vice Health Minister

September 1, 2005

On Wednesday in Beijing, Chinese Vice Health Minister Wang Longde pledged more government support for nongovernmental organizations, whose AIDS-fighting work he called "outstanding." Among NGO activities: The All-China Women's Federation has launched an HIV/AIDS education campaign targeting women in 51 locations around China, and two groups are helping care for AIDS patients in Beijing's You'an Hospital. "HIV-infected people need understanding and care more than medical treatment, and NGOs set up a bridge between those groups and the society," said Xu Lianzhi, director of the NGO Home of Loving Care.
