CGTN published this video item, entitled “Trailer | The Battle Up The Hill: Breaking The Poverty Cycle In SW China” – below is their description.
For decades, Butuo County in the hinterland of Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province was the poster child for extreme poverty in China. Adversities were manifold: geographical remoteness, marginalization, and a double epidemic of drugs and HIV. Economic and social development was also late to arrive in the area. China’s decades-long anti-poverty campaign has made notable achievements nationwide. And while progress in Butuo has been palpable, it’s been slow and difficult. Does the hilly county have what it takes to break free from its shackles? For the answer, tune in for CGTN’s “The Battle Up The Hill” documentary, premiering on September 28.

In This Story: HIV
The human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV) are two species of Lentivirus (a subgroup of retrovirus) that infect humans. Over time, they cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition in which progressive failure of the immune system allows life-threatening opportunistic infections and cancers to thrive.
Without treatment, average survival time after infection with HIV is estimated to be 9 to 11 years, depending on the HIV subtype. In most cases, HIV is a sexually transmitted infection and occurs by contact with or transfer of blood, pre-ejaculate, semen, and vaginal fluids. Research has shown (for both same-sex and opposite-sex couples) that HIV is untransmittable through condomless sexual intercourse if the HIV-positive partner has a consistently undetectable viral load.
Non-sexual transmission can occur from an infected mother to her infant during pregnancy, during childbirth by exposure to her blood or vaginal fluid, and through breast milk. Within these bodily fluids, HIV is present as both free virus particles and virus within infected immune cells.
