China Builds First Provincial HIV/AIDS Care Center

July 6, 2007

China's first provincial HIV/AIDS center will open later this year in the suburbs of Kunming, capital of southwest Yunnan Province, said Xu Heping, deputy director of the province's Bureau of Health. The center will have six specialized departments: clinical treatment, technical consulting, research and development, international exchange and cooperation, clinical treatment training and psychological therapy. With its close proximity to the drug-producing Golden Triangle in Southeast Asia, Yunnan has one of China's worst HIV/AIDS epidemics. As of late 2006, the province had 48,591 known HIV cases and 3,935 AIDS cases. Many of the infections have been transmitted through needle sharing and unsafe sex activities.
