The global efforts to raise awareness for HIV/AIDS has taken a significant step forward. With a potential to reach 300 million people in 60 cities China’s leading state-run radio networks has launched a nationwide, AIDS-focused program featuring HIV-positive hosts, Xinhua News Agency reports. The weekly show, Positive Talks, began airing January 16 on China National Radio (CNR). It features audience interaction and interviews with experts in the field. The show’s goal, said CNR deputy editor-in-chief Yang Wenyan, is to raise HIV awareness in China while giving more attention, care and support to those living with the virus there. According to estimates by the Chinese Ministry of Health and UNAIDS, between 560,000 to 920,000 people are living with HIV in China.
