Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the origin, evolution, re-conceptualization and breakthroughs of RTI/STD/HIV/AIDS in the past 30 years in China, looking at the risk factors, responses and prospects for the future. China's reform and opening to foreign countries was launched 30 years ago, bringing with it tremendous changes in all aspects of society. These social, economic and cultural changes have fostered the conditions for China's STD/HIV/AIDS epidemic. The patterns and processes of introduction, evolution, prevention and control highlight some of China's existing challenges, such as: structural constraints, the denial of entitlements, the absence of democracy and the rule of law, and poor governance. STD/HIV/AIDS prevention and control will be a never-ending journey if one fails to promote social development and solve our pre-existing social problems.

Keywords:China's STD/HIV/AIDS; cultural risk factors
