Gao Yaojie: Interview with RFA

From RFA Unplugged:

I want to publish two books. One is a manuscript that I gave to a publisher in 2004, which has been dragging its feet ever since. Now the material is out of date, so I must update it and reorganize it. That book is called “AIDS Orphans”. Another book is called “10 years in AIDS prevention”.

But not only have the black market blood-banks not closed, they are on the increase again. 25 counties in Guizhou alone are engaged in blood-selling.
