The Chinese mainland now has ten surviving comfort women still living, said the Research Center for Comfort Women at Shanghai Normal University on Monday.
The term refers to victims forced into sexual slavery by Japanese troops during World War II.
Three comfort women died in Hunan Province and Hainan Province in August and September.
The center has set up a fund for comfort women research and assistance, which assists the victims and supports relevant research.
Previous research showed some 400,000 women in Asia were forced to be comfort women for the Japanese army during World War II, and nearly half were Chinese.
