BEIJING, June 26 (Xinhua) -- China on Tuesday vowed to make more efforts in HIV prevention, and help strengthen global cooperation in this regard.

"China will strengthen cooperation with international organizations and help HIV prevention services in countries with high prevalence," said Vice Premier Li Keqiang in a meeting with UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) Michel Sidibe in downtown Beijing.

Li added that the Chinese government will encourage and support non-governmental organizations and volunteers to actively take part in HIV prevention campaigns in the country.

The government will also support the media to strengthen public education and supervision in this regard, Li said.

According to the vice premier, China has curbed the fast spread of HIV, and reduced the related death rate. China will be able to realize the HIV prevention goal under the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015, he said.
