[size=117]Today (September 17) at the Medical School of Beijing Tsinghua University, Dr. Peter Piot, UNAIDS Executive Director and Under Secretary-General of the United Nations, presented to Yao Ming and 2 other persons in China the UNAIDS Awards for Outstanding Contributions to the AIDS Response to recognize their special contribution to AIDS Prevention and Care programs in China.

Since Yao Ming had just wrapped up his Sichuan tour, and was just back in Shanghai, he could not make it to the occasion, and has therefore delegated his Chinese agent, Lu Hao to receive the award on his behalf.


The other 2 persons that received the honor together with Yao Ming are:

[color=darkred][list][*]Serge Dumont, Senior Vice President and President Asia Pacific of Omnicom Group Inc (the world's largest marketing communication and advertising agency) and Special Representative of UNAIDS in China. Serge Dumont is a French businessman with close ties to the US and Europe, with work experience in Asia and China for more than 20 years. He is greatly involved in philanthropic activities, in particular in the fields of AIDS and education. As UNAIDS Special Representative, Serge Dumont is focusing his efforts on promoting stronger engagement of business, media, and celebrities in the worldwide response to AIDS, with a particular focus on Asia and Europe.

[*]Li Xiguang, Executive Dean of the School of Journalism and Communication of Tsinghua University, Deputy-director of Tsinghua University Comprehensive AIDS Research Center, Director of Tsinghua Institute for Health Communication. Li Xiguang is [b]China
