Hundreds of teachers and students passing by there signed their names earnestly and managed to learn more corresponding information proactively, making the atmosphere pretty lively.

The lecturer was Doctor Wen Yingchun, the archiater and director of Health Education Department from Harbin Disease Control Center, as well as the secretary-general ofHUSTAssociation of STD & AIDS Prevention & Control.

Doctor Wen extended his lecture from 5 parts, i.e. The introduction of STD and AIDS, the spread of AIDS, the hazard of AIDS to the society, the self-protection and treatment of HIV/AIDS occupational exposure and the corresponding policies and regulations from governments at all levels.
