Chinese HIV cases jump nearly 30 percent (AP)

Leaflets with information about AIDS sit on the table of a group meeting for people living with AIDS at a center for health education in Beijing China Wednesday Nov. 22 2006. China's Ministry of Health said Wednesday that reported cases of HIV/AIDS jumped 30 percent in 2006 compared to the year previous with intravenous drug use the main source of infection. After years of denying that AIDS was a problem Chinese leaders have dramatically shifted gears in recent years confronting the disease head-on promising anonymous testing free treatment for the poor and a ban on discrimination against people with the virus.  President Hu Jintao symbolized the new approach when he appeared on national television in late 2004 chatting and shaking hands with AIDS patients. (AP Photo/Elizabeth Dalziel)AP - Two months before the end of 2006 China's reported number of HIV/AIDS cases already is nearly 30 percent higher than for all of last year with intravenous drug use as the biggest source of infection the Health Ministry said Wednesday.
