China Gets Tough On AIDS

China’s making great strides in the fight against HIV. Nineteen gay Beijing bars have joined the Chaoyang Chinese Aids Volunteer Group to help promote safe sex. In fact, they’re taking at least partial responsibility for people’s sex practices.

China Daily elaborates on the potentially life saving movement:

According to the memorandum of understanding, bar owners are responsible for promoting safe sex among their gay clientele in their venues. They have joined the fight against AIDS with medical scientists, volunteers and government officials.

Condom vending machines will be installed in many venues, and trained staff will be offered a financial bonus for promoting the safe sex message.

The government’s also vowed to help keep infection rates down and life spans up.
