More on World AIDS Day

CNN just did a story on China's HIV-positive citizens who were infected by illegal tainted blood supplies. One woman said that when she confronted the hospital where she received the blood, she and her family members were beaten by thugs, at least one of whom was a policeman.

It took the Chinese government a long time to talk openly about China's terrible AIDS problem. When we hear about what happened in China, we are appalled, yet a similar thing happened in the United States, when the Red Cross knowingly supplied HIV-tainted blood to patients in the 1980's.
