Officials to be evaluated on HIV/AIDS performance


16:07, February 29, 2012

BEIJING, Feb. 29 (Xinhua) -- China will consider officials' knowledge of HIV/AIDS and their record in its prevention and control when they conduct annual performance evaluations, according to a national action plan issued on Wednesday.

The State Council, or China's Cabinet, published the country's AIDS Action Plan for the 12th Five-year Program period (2011-2015) on the website of the Chinese government,

The plan decreed HIV/AIDS-related knowledge and policies will be taught at all of the nation's leader cultivating schools, including those of the Communist Party of China and the Communist Youth League, as well as administrative schools.

Officials' performance in promoting HIV/AIDS public education will be an important evaluation criterion. The plan called for efforts to expand education in the field to create a non-discriminatory social environment.

China has about 780,000 people living with HIV/AIDS, including 154,000 AIDS patients.
