China's health minister said Wednesday that the country was taking measures to keep the number of HIV-infected people below 1.5 million by 2010. A day after the World Health Organization said it would fail to hit its target of supplying 3 million people worldwide with anti-viral drugs to combat HIV, Gao Qiang told a news conference that his ministry had already outlined a plan for 2006-2010, including measures to prevent the disease from spreading, along with the responsibilities of the authorities on the issue. He said there were currently 840,000 AIDS or HIV positive patients in China. "The rights and responsibilities of AIDS patients and people infected with HIV are also laid out in the plan," he said. The minister told journalists that drug users remained the main source for the spread of HIV in the country, and added that 70,000 had become infected after blood transfusions, particularly in the 1980s and 1990s.
