UN Says "Truly Exceptional Response" Needed From China to Beat AIDS

June 8, 2005

Today in Beijing, UNAIDS Executive Director Peter Piot praised China's response to AIDS but said the nation must do more. "Chinese leadership at the highest levels has made AIDS a priority issue -- these commitments must be made real. We're encouraged by what we see but a truly exceptional response is needed to get ahead of the epidemic." Piot and U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Randall Tobias are traveling in China to monitor the nation's successes and challenges in its fight against AIDS. Stressing the United States' continuing commitment to helping China combat the epidemic, Tobias said, "This visit and the opportunity I've had to meet with Chinese officials helps ensure U.S. support is consistent with China's HIV/AIDS goals and objectives."
