Human rights organizations complained about the years and again the abduction (AIDS in China: Epidemie of secrecy and vacuum), foreign journalists were systematically obstructed by the police and the agencies in their research work (China: AIDS threatens the giant rich) and the problem was under the carpet swept.

This was only changed in 2004 as the Chinese government decided to take the fight against HIV for massive international prere (AIDS: China’s gigantic threat).
