HIV patient to sue hospital over cancer op refusal

An HIV-positive patient who was refused treatment for lung cancer is planning to sue the hospital concerned, a Beijing-based NGO told the Global Times Wednesday.

Despite national regulations which state that medical institutions must provide treatment for all diseases to HIV/AIDS victims, Xiao Feng (pseudonym), a 25-year-old Tianjin native, had to resort to subterfuge to receive cancer treatment, forging his medical records to reflect that he did not have HIV.

Li Hu, the manager of the North China Region of the China Alliance of People Living with HIV/AIDS, said that he has released information about the case in a bid to bring more attention to the plight of China's HIV sufferers who face great discrimination when attempting to access medical treatment.

"We want to sue the hospital so we can build a health system and HIV/AIDS patients can have the same treatment as other people," said Li.
