AIDS Treatment for Children in China: A Human Rights Perspective

Asia Catalyst and NYU Public Interest Law Foundation present a panel discussion and official launching of the upcoming AIDS research report.

April 28, 2009 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Asia Catalyst cordially invites you to join us for a panel discussion officially launching our upcoming research report, I Will Fight to My Last Breath: Barriers to AIDS Treatment for Children in China. Based on interviews with children, families and frontline AIDS workers in rural China, the report documents how HIV-infected children in China face serious economic and social barriers to getting government-supported help to which they are legally entitled. These barriers range from gaps in the government treatment program that impoverished families cannot afford to fill, to the refusal by some hospitals to treat children with AIDS.

The discussion will be followed by a wine and cheese reception from 8:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., an opportunity to mingle and further conversation with our panelists and other participants.
