Norway to cooperate with China on health project

Norway will spend around NOK 12 million on health projects in cooperation with China over the next three years. Half of the money will be used on projects dealing with HIV and Aids, says Health Minister Dagfinn Hoeybraaten (photo). -As part of the international society, Norway has a responsibility to join in the fight against this epidemic, Hoeybraaten says. In China, probably one million people are sick with HIV. Experts fear that ten times this number may be sick with HIV by the year 22010.
