The Executive Director of UNAIDS, Dr. Peter Piot, praised the Chinese government''s contribution to HIV/AIDS prevention on a return tour of the infamous AIDS villages in central China''s Henan Province.

Piot made the remarks on Tuesday when recalling his visit on Monday to the severely AIDS-affected village of Nandawu in Shangcai County.

Piot and his delegation inspected the local clinics and elementary schools, and visited two AIDS patients'' families there to have a closer look at their medical treatment and daily life.

He also paid a visit to the "Sunlight Home" in Shangcai, a government-funded charity that looks after AIDS orphans.

"During this tour, I have seen with my own eyes how the government supports those AIDS patients and cares about those AIDS-affected orphans.I pay respect to all the efforts, which are consistent with the commitment the Chinese government has made in the sector," said the UN official.

"I am looking forward to further cooperation between the United Nations and the Chinese central government," he said.

Though there is still a long way to eliminate HIV/AIDS, the joint efforts of more countries will surely bring benefit to the Chinese people as well as people over the world, he added.

Apart from treatment to those already infected by AIDS, Piot also called for better ways to prevent the further spread of the disease.
