China: Health professional action: Hu Jia
Amnesty International is seriously concerned for the health of Hu Jia, a Chinese HIV/AIDS human rights activist. Hu Jia is serving a three-and-a-half-year prison sentence for "inciting subversion". On 12 April, a prison doctor informed Hu Jia’s mother that a medical check found a hemangioma in his liver. Amnesty International calls on the Chinese authorities to grant Hu Jia medical parole so he can receive adequate treatment.
