Japan Trust Fund Project Factsheet 

As the first deaths were reported in rural Chinese villages, popular myths about HIV/AIDS transmission flourished. Fear and stigma also thrived in an information-starved environment. Lack of accurate, appropriate and timely information is largely responsible for HIV infections among Chinese youth and women of childbearing age. Young people often leave the countryside in search of work and can't cope with the challenges of an urban context. The HIV infection rate among injecting drug users in China is also increasing and provides an opportunity to address the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs of this community. 
To help improve the situation, the China Family Planning Association (CFPA) built on the work of an earlier JTF/IPPF-funded project that targeted 'floating' youth. This time, CFPA hoped to educate young people before they moved to the cities and also to generate HIV/AIDS awareness within the wider family group.

Report of Promoting SRH Health through Sports during Olympics
The 29th Olympics was held in Beijing in August 2008. As the host city, a great number of guests from abroad rushed into Beijing at this special time. During the Olympics, a large numbers of tourists from China and all over the world also visited Entertainment Establishments (EEs) located in Sanlitun of Chaoyang District in Beijing. Moreover, hundreds of thousands of youth from Beijing universities were recruited to become volunteers for the Olympics and served at stadiums and the Athletes Village etc. 
This project aimed to increase the knowledge of sexual and reproductive health (particularly STI/HIV/AIDS prevention) amongst these volunteers and the staff in EEs in Sanlitun and also to promote safer sex practices amongst customers in the EEs.

RH Project to Muslim Population
There are altogether 10 minority nationalities in China who believe in Islam, they are Hui, Uigur, Kazak, Tongxiang, Kirgiz, Salar, Tajik, Ozbek, Bao’an and Tatar. According to the statistics of National Population Census in 2000, the total Muslim population in China is about 20.32 million. The size of Muslim population of China ranks at 11th in the world. Seventy-four percent of Chinese Muslim population resided in the remote and backward western region of China with undeveloped social and economic conditions. Due to constrains caused by poor geographic location, difficult economic, natural and transportational condition, the per capita income of Muslim population is lower than the average national per capita income, the educational level is also lower than the national level.
Compared to the general population in the whole country, improvement of the reproductive health situation of Muslim population constitutes an even bigger challenge in China. The Muslim population is facing with many problems, including the high fertility rate, the high infant mortality rate and high reproductive tract infection. For example, the average infant mortality rate in the whole country in 1990 was 29.4‰. But among the Muslim population, the rate was 75.8‰ in Hui, 84.2‰ in Salar, 99.5‰ in Kirgiz and 108.4‰ in Tajik. The rate of early marriage (Be married before the legal age) was 5% in the whole country in 1990, but the rate was 28.8% and 26.1% in Uigur and Salar respectively.
