HIV/AIDS is more than a medical disaster. It is hurting households, slowing economic growth, and robbing countries of invaluable human talent and ingenuity. However, there is cause for hope. HIV infection is preventable. And medications now exist that can provide highly effective treatment.
In China, HIV case reports indicate that the HIV/AIDS epidemic is spreading into the general population. There is emerging evidence that the proportion of sexually transmitted HIV infections is increasing and the proportion of female HIV cases has increased considerably in recent years. The response to HIV/AIDS in China is now at a crucial stage.
The cooperation between CCTV.com and the United Nations Theme Group on HIV/AIDS in China is a joint effort to establish a platform to provide recent and up-to-date information on HIV prevention and AIDS care to the general public. The purpose is to get people to participate in HIV prevention and AIDS care activities, increase the awareness of AIDS, promote communication and effective exchange of information between the government, NGOs, the private sector and individuals, and reduce the stigmatization and discrimination of people living with AIDS. HIV is not a death sentence. But silence about HIV and AIDS can be one. As UNAIDS Country Coordinator, I would like to encourage everyone to speak out about HIV and AIDS to create a more accepting and harmonious society for everyone, including people with AIDS.
