My internship was focused on providing support to my preceptors in the areas of HIV prevention and treatment. This started with gaining an in-depth understanding of the HIV/STI situation in China, including: current incidence and prevalence rates, urban and rural demographics, stigma and discrimination of PLHIV, condom use among sex workers and IDUs, and ARV treatment. I developed a fact sheet on the HIV epidemic in China as well as a comprehensive background report and presentation on the current HIV situation in China to be presented at the annual WHO regional strategic planning meeting. I was also responsible for organizing a meeting of the UN technical working group on care and treatment, in which I provided a summary report of the meeting’s minutes and recommendations which will be used to in pursuing next steps with the Ministry of Health.
