U.N. Secretary-General Praises China's Role in Combating HIV/AIDS; New Programs Start to Fight Disease
October 12, 2004
U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Monday praised China's role in combating HIV/AIDS, saying that the world is counting on China to meet Millennium Development Goals, which include halting and reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS by 2015, Agence France-Presse reports. Annan warned that even if other countries were to meet the goals, "if China had failed to do those things, there would still be terrible consequences for humanity." Annan also urged students to become involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS. "You should join in the fight and speak about it and let people know and don't be ashamed to talk about it. When it comes to AIDS, silence is death," he said (Agence France-Presse, 10/11).
