About this book

This book presents the history of HIV/AIDS in China, which over the last three decades has been a gripping tale of exclusion and fear, and then, by turns, of involuntary tragedy, cautious experimentation and finally vigorous response. It discusses the occurrence, development and epidemic studies and also introduces China’s policies and measures to conquer this epidemic, offering readers valuable insights into China’s approach to prevention in this field.


About the authors

Dr. Zunyou Wu is the Director of the National Center for AIDS/STD Control and Prevention, Chinese Center for Disease Control, Beijing, China.

Reviews

“HIV/AIDS in China: Beyond the Numbers is a fascinating account of how the AIDS epidemic forced these leaders into action. … This book offers a vivid history of China’s response to HIV from the pathogen’s emergence until the present, and it joins the relatively thin ranks of books that offer first-person accounts of important eras in public health. This is a must-read book for anyone interested in HIV, infectious diseases more generally, or global health.” (Kristin Harper, Science, December, Vol. 354 (6318), 2016)
