Beijing’s first clinic for gay people, also China’s first to provide free services, opened Wednesday, providing checkups for all sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including AIDS, syphilis, gonorrhea and genital herpes.
Xiao Dong, head of the Chaoyang Chinese AIDS Volunteer Group, said free treatment would be given to STD carriers, and confirmed HIV carriers would be introduced to national free treatment programmes.
People wanting checkups should log on to the group’s website (www.hivolunt.net) and fill in an application form before going to the clinic. More than 500 people signed up yesterday.
