Bottom Line: Beyond this strong financial support, these programmes have introduced best practices, accelerated the introduction of AIDS policies, strengthened capacity, improved the development of grassroots social organizations and established a platform for communication and experience sharing with the international community.The National Centre for AIDS/STD Control and Prevention (NCAIDS) in China is consolidating all international projects into national HIV prevention, treatment and care activities.International cooperation projects have been an invaluable component of China's response to HIV/AIDS, and China has now been able to take this information and share its experiences with other countries with the help of these same international programmes.

ABSTRACT

Background: For 20 years, China has participated in 267 international cooperation projects against the HIV/AIDS epidemic and received ∼526 million USD from over 40 international organizations. These projects have played an important role by complementing national efforts in the fight against HIV/AIDS in China.

Methods: The diverse characteristics of these projects followed three phases over 20 years. Initially, stand-alone projects provided technical support in surveillance, training or advocacy for public awareness. As the epidemic spread across China, projects became a part of the comprehensive and integrated national response. Currently, international best practices encourage the inclusion of civil society and non-governmental organizations in an expanded response to the epidemic.

Results: Funding from international projects has accounted for one-third of the resources provided for the HIV/AIDS response in China. Beyond this strong financial support, these programmes have introduced best practices, accelerated the introduction of AIDS policies, strengthened capacity, improved the development of grassroots social organizations and established a platform for communication and experience sharing with the international community. However, there are still challenges ahead, including integrating existing resources and exploring new programme models. The National Centre for AIDS/STD Control and Prevention (NCAIDS) in China is consolidating all international projects into national HIV prevention, treatment and care activities.

Conclusion: International cooperation projects have been an invaluable component of China's response to HIV/AIDS, and China has now been able to take this information and share its experiences with other countries with the help of these same international programmes.

Mentions: From 1988 to 2009, China has participated in 276 international cooperation projects focused on HIV/AIDS prevention and control. This list includes cooperation with 40 international multilateral organizations, bilateral governmental organizations, international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) or foundations. These international partners have invested >526 million USD for HIV/AIDS efforts over this period of time.1 The principle areas of investment have been in policy advocacy, monitoring, case detection, HIV prevention and intervention, stigma and discrimination reduction, care and support, capacity building, multi-sector cooperation and promotion of community-based organization (CBO) involvement. Yunnan, Henan and Sichuan have been the largest provincial recipients of funds, with each receiving >20 million USD.1 Across China, these projects have introduced strategies for meeting local needs, exploring innovative methods, promoting international best practices and implementing successful HIV/AIDS control activities. As the HIV/AIDS epidemic in China evolved,2 international support reflected these changing challenges (Figure 1).Figure 1
