By the end of 2020, there are over million PLHIV alive in China. Only 20% of HIV infected don’t know their status (DOI: 10.13419/j.cnki.aids.2021.11.03 ). In 2003, China rolled out a key policy of "four frees, one care" in HIV/AIDS prevention and control, which include -- free HIV testing, free counseling, and treatment for HIV carriers in rural areas, free medication for all HIV positives who are pregnant, and free awareness training for children orphaned by AIDS, as well as assistance for poverty-stricken patients in order to curb AIDS-related discrimination.
