From Xinhua:

China has started revising the current laws and regulations that ban HIV carriers from entering the country, health ministry spokesman Mao Qun’an said on Monday.

At a press briefing in Beijing, he said it took time for China to learn about AIDS. When the country had no idea how HIV/AIDS was transmitted, China issued laws that restricted the entry of HIV carriers.

“According to the transmissive means of HIV/AIDS and our current evaluation on the harmfulness of HIV carriers, we have set to revise laws and regulations that ban HIV carriers’ entry into the country,” Mao said.

But he didn’t say how the laws would be revised. [Full Text]
