Updated: 2005-03-20 16:11

China says its health departments will further strengthen AIDS surveillance work.

At a symposium in Beijing, vice Health Minister Wang Longde said by the end of last year, China had increased its state-level AIDS surveillance stations to 247. And China had another 400 provincial-level surveillance stations, almost covering all targeted groups.

The minister added this year China will further implement free treatment for low-income AIDS patients and attempt to eliminate social discrimination against people suffering from AIDS.
