Three Ways JD Health Works with UNAIDS to Prevent AIDS in China
by Vivian Yang
In the lead-up to the 35th World AIDS Day on December 1, JD Health joined hands with UNAIDS China to carry out equipment donations, an expert’s livestream and dedicated promotion of anti-AIDS services via its platforms.
Under JD Health’s coordination, more than 10,000 pieces of HIV testing tools and protection kits were donated to Beijing Love Without Borders, an NGO that supports local communities’ work to end AIDS. Eight companies including Gu Xiao Jia, Wondfo, Accu News, Wellday, Jissbon, Leeswell, AiD, and LifeStyles participated in the donation activity.
At the same time, JD Health set up a theme portal on its App from November 30 to December 2 to promote public awareness of HIV/AIDS. On December 1, Dr. Wu Zunyou, the chief epidemiologist of the Chinese Center for Disease Control & Prevention was invited for a livestream on the platform to convey AIDS-related knowledge.
During the sharing session, Dr. Wu pointed out that ordering HIV testing products and medications through e-commerce and receiving online medical consultations and psychological counseling via telemedicine methods at anytime and anywhere can significantly enhance people’s access to help for AIDS prevention and treatment, while offering greater relief and privacy protection.
Products for both Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) with clear guidance can be easily accessed on JD Health’s App, and medicines are delivered to users’ doorsteps in a timely manner, along with dedicated telemedicine consultation services from physicians for customized support.
According to data from China’s National Health Committee, there were 129,000 new positive HIV cases found in China in 2021, with 97.9 percent caused by sexual transmission, which continue to be the main challenge for society in fighting the disease.
