Dear Friend,

China has made notable progress addressing HIV/AIDS, and the Chinese government is to be commended for adopting a series of measures to combat the epidemic using scientifically validated strategies. A widespread epidemic has been averted, but much remains to be done and we must remain vigilant.

Dr. Schneemann

About 700,000 people are HIV positive in China, but less than 50,000 receive antiretroviral treatment. Driven by increases in high-risk behavior, a huge migrant workforce that circulates widely around the country, and persistent lack of knowledge about HIV prevention, infections are rising fast and starting to spread to the general population.

Since its founding in 2003, the China AIDS Initiative has launched advocacy, training, treatment and research programs to raise awareness, develop local expertise, enhance standards for care, and advance understanding about HIV in China. CAI’s interventions have helped to reduce the spread of what could otherwise become a devastating AIDS epidemic.

Coordinated by the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center (ADARC), CAI mobilizes the capacity, resources, and expertise of its partner organizations, including:

Our featured program—Preventing Mother To Child Transmission of HIV—has reduced newborn infections from 33% to <2% in selected counties in Yunnan, and will hopefully expand throughout the province and beyond.

We are also helping to train the next generation of AIDS scientists through partnerships with the University of Hong Kong and Tsinghua University, which with help from ADARC have established AIDS research centers in the region.

Please join us in helping China reverse the tide of HIV/AIDS by committing your financial support to the China AIDS Initiative.

尊敬的朋友,

中国解决艾滋病毒/艾滋病取得了显著进展,值得赞扬的是中国政府采取一系列措施,使用科学有效的策略防止疫病流行。虽然一场大规模的流行扩散已经避免,但仍然有许多未完成的工作,我们必须时刻保持警惕。

Dr. Schneemann

中国约有70万艾滋病毒感染者,目前不到5万人接受到抗逆转录病毒治疗。由于高危行为的增加、众多流动人口在全国的广泛迁移、和人们长期缺乏预防艾滋病的基本知识,病毒感染正在迅速上升,并已开始波及到总人口中。

自2003年中国艾滋病防治行动成立以来、发起倡导、培训、治疗和研究项目,提高知识,发挥当地专家的作用,提高护理标准,并在中国推动了解艾滋病毒流行的知识。中国艾滋病防治行动的参预,对减少可能蔓延到毁灭性的艾滋病流行灾难作出了贡献。

艾伦戴蒙德艾滋病研究中心总协调,中国艾滋病防治行动动员和集中其他合作机构的一切能力、资源、专门技能,参与防治行动。其联盟的伙伴包括:

我们的重点项目—阻断母婴传播艾滋病毒计划—在云南选定的县以实施有效的方法已减少了新生儿的感染率,从33 % 降低到2 %以下,并希望将该计划扩大到全省各地和其他省。

我们还与香港大学和清华大学合作训练新一代的艾滋病研究人员。在艾伦戴蒙德艾滋病研究中心的帮助下,已在北京和香港建立了艾滋病研究中心。

请加入我们的行列,帮助中国阻止艾滋病毒/艾滋病袭击的潮流,提供您的财政资源,支持中国艾滋病防治行。
