After 16 years of effort, China has set up a preliminary AIDS monitoring system that integrates case reports with monitoring-station-based approaches, according to Lu Fan, an official with the China AIDS and Venereal Disease Control Center. Lu, speaking at a recent national conference on AIDS monitoring in Guiyang, Guizhou Province, said the system incorporates AIDS and STD control and blends behavioral and biological monitoring. After it began monitoring AIDS in 1986, China developed a case-report-based control system. However, this is believed to be too passive in collecting sufficient and accurate information. In 1995, China launched 42 AIDS monitoring stations in 23 provincial areas, implementing more active monitoring of at-risk populations including STD patients, narcotics users and prostitutes.
