China has detected about 1,500 new foreign HIV/AIDS sufferers on the mainland in the past three years, according to the National Center for AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Disease Control and Prevention.

However, there are no official statistics showing how many foreigners with HIV/AIDS are currently on the mainland.

About 460 foreigners were receiving free antiretroviral therapy (ART) from local Chinese health providers, while the others would have had to pay for their own treatment, as there is no national standard.
