An 8-year-old boy - who suffers from HIV and was given the pseudonym Kunkun by Chinese media - sits on the doorstep of his home in a village in Xichong county, southwest Sichuan province, on December 18, 2014China's health ministry has promised to provide medical care and a living allowance for an eight-year-old HIV-positive boy targeted by villagers for expulsion, state media reported Monday, in a case that has drawn widespread condemnation. The health ministry has also pledged to conduct spot checks around China to uncover any other violations of anti-discrimination policies, the state-run paper reported. The provincial Communist Party committee is investigating reports of the petition to expel the boy, the Global Times newspaper, with close ties to the party, quoted an unnamed propaganda official as saying. The boy was left with his grandfather when both his parents quit the impoverished village to seek work and remains in his grandfather's care in the village for the present, the Beijing News indicated.
