Taboo-Busting Professor Who Dared to Teach About HIV Due to Retire
When Central China was ravaged by the rapid spread of HIV in the mid-1990s, local governments initially responded by keeping mum, hoping the problem would just go away.

Gao Yanning, a professor of public health at Shanghai’s prestigious Fudan University, was one of the few people able to document the impact of the epidemic caused by illicit blood dealers and a government-backed unsanitary blood-for-cash drive in the late 1980s and 1990s.
