AIDS Awareness Still Low In China: Survey

From AFP:

Knowledge and awareness of AIDS and HIV transmission in China is still low, even in big cities like Shanghai, according to a survey released Friday.

More than 6,000 people in six Chinese cities were interviewed for the research — supported by UNAIDS — which also found that there was still serious stigmatisation of people living with HIV in China.

Beijing’s Renmin University conducted the survey.

Less than a fifth of respondents said they would use a condom if they had sex with a new partner, and more than 63 percent would be unwilling to accept services like hairdressing from an HIV-infected person.
