Chinese mother devoted to HIV/AIDS education, prevention for young people

Chinese mother devoted to HIV/AIDS education, prevention for young people
- Zhang Yinjun, who founded a non-profit program to help young people across China to prevent HIV/AIDS, told Xinhua that as a mother, she was very much saddened and worried to read heart-rending news stories about the growing number of Chinese young people who have contracted human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which causes the killer disease AIDS.

Zhang quit her job at the Chinese Ministry of Public Health 12 years ago to set up the AIDS Prevention Education Project for Chinese Youth (APEPCY). She has dedicated the past years to HIV/AIDS prevention education and poverty alleviation among Chinese youth.

"We primarily offer education focused on HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, comprehensive sex education and personal development training," said Zhang, who was at UN Headquarters in New York to attend a two-week meeting of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), which began on March 13.
