The rapid increase in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevalence and incidence requires that Chinese health professionals mobilize for HIV prevention. The article describes an HIV/acquired immune deficiency syndrome knowledge and attitude assessment administered before and after a lecture. HIV transmission knowledge was good, with 90 percent to 100 percent of participants correctly identifying means of transmission. Prior to and after the lecture, 43 percent and 21 percent, respectively, were unwilling to sit or work with an HIV-infected person. To increase the likelihood of prevention activities' success, HIV knowledge and attitudes of health care personnel in China must be monitored and improved.
