The student with shaggy hair hanging low over his eyes, his head pulled turtle-like into a leather jacket, was plainly embarrassed by his ignorance.
Not until three months ago, when he got back the results of his blood test, had the 22-year-old art student at a Beijing university heard of the term HIV. None of his friends knew how to use condoms or had any idea why they should.
“By the time they realized, it was too late,” said the student, who asked not to be named.
Belatedly, China is trying to get out the word about the AIDS virus and officials are doing it in the typically oversize way that befits the world’s most populous nation, deploying an army of volunteers.
