Northwest China Province Requires HIV Carriers to Inform Partners
December 7, 2009
A regulation recently adopted by the health department in Gansu province requires people with HIV/AIDS to inform their sexual partners within one month of their diagnosis. It also states that HIV/AIDS patients have a responsibility to persuade their partners to present for testing and counseling. Violating the regulation will be seen as spreading HIV deliberately, an act punishable under law, said Wang Xiaoming, the department's vice director.
