Beijing 'putting AIDS on agenda'

Financial Times

China's government has stepped up efforts to fight AIDS by drawing up revised policies, approving greater spending and showing new willingness to accept overseas assistance, the head of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) said yesterday. Peter Piot, UNAIDS executive director, said that, following the epidemic of Sars in China earlier this year, Beijing had replaced "extremely vague" promises on AIDS with "very specific" plans. "I really feel that there is a change going on," Mr Piot said on the sidelines of a World Economic Forum meeting in Beijing. "I know that for top state leaders in China today, AIDS is on the agenda."
