Mistakes, abuses and prejudices of an entire system that underestimated and then inadequately treated a dangerous health problem with the wrong tools: inadequate medicines, medicines not approved by the United Nations, discriminations.

In China AIDS spreaded mainly thanks to selling blood. “In many rural areas of China during the 1990s, particularly in the province of Henan, hundreds of thousands up to millions of farmers and peasants were infected with HIV through participation in state-run blood collection programs in which contaminated equipment was reused.”(Wikipedia).
