China Hospitals Deny HIV/AIDS Patients

Do not get HIV or AIDS while in China.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) uncovered HIV-related discrimination in China's hospitals and clinics via interviews with more than 100 people living with HIV.  

In short, a death sentence for Chinese AIDS patients.

According to Chinese authorities, at least 740,000 people have HIV/AIDS, out of a total population of 1.3 billion.  But estimates are likely double that, given Chinese authorities control negative information.

Cost is a factor. Chinese hospitals are expected to turn a profit from their operations, and are often reticent to deal with highly infectious diseases in general, especially ones that are expensive and long term to treat. 

The health care system in China is government sponsored, and in general would be characterized as a single-payer model, much like the model Obamacare would have mimicked had the single-payer option not been deleted just prior to passage.
