HIV/AIDS Project in China Reduces Discrimination Among Migrant Workers

August 5, 2009

A three-year HIV/AIDS educational project that reached out to 50 million migrant workers in China resulted in their becoming "less prone to discriminate against people infected with HIV/AIDS," according to a recent study, Agence France-Presse reports. According to the study, "Among the 250,000 workers who participated in 29 programmes in Guangdong province in the south, Yunnan in the southwest and Anhui in the east, 84 percent said they did not mind working with people living with HIV" -- "a sharp increase from 40 percent in a survey of the workers conducted before the campaign started," the news service writes (8/4).
