A Chinese teacher, who has been refused to practice in his job as a teacher after it came out that he carries the HIV infection, sued his former employer in China's first lawsuit on employment discrimination. The claimant's case has now been dismissed by Anqing's Yinjiang District Court.
The Judges decided in favor of the accused school to rightly having fired the defendant as this confirms public health standards of China. The claimant is said to not being capable of practicing his teaching position while being HIV positive.
An electronic statement comments: "Our centre believes this court ruling is bad news for people with AIDS. If all sectors of the economy adhere to the public servant's medical examination standards, then people infected with HIV will simply be unable to find any job at all."
The main cause of HIV infections in China is due to unhygienic hospital practices instead of sexual transmission as often claimed by the government.
Health Minister Chen Zhu recently confirmed that the official number of documented HIV case in China of 319,877 must be replaced by a more realistic number of approximately 740,000 people.
In China, HIV infections are documented to undergo an upwards trend and the resulting AIDS disease has been the number one death cause in the country in the year 2008.
