China, March 30, 2009

China’s 106 million ethnic minorities disproportionately suffer the effects of migration, drug use and HIV/AIDS. Minority girls are particularly vulnerable to HIV:

  • Socially – low social status, low levels of education and early marriage limit girls’ negotiation power in sexual relationships
