Periodical title
AIDS, Public Policy and Child Well-Being, chapter 9

This chapter examines HIV/AIDS prevalence in Yunnan. The impact on children is still limited, although it is likely to rise over the next decade due to the absence of clear policy in this area. Social values prevent the problem from being tackled openly. The weakness of social infrastructures and of the health care system is also a factor that increases the potential impact of AIDS in the province.
