Aids Concern

Focus Areas

The four main things we will do to achieve our mission are:
 1. Deliver HIV education and prevention targeting people at highest risk
 2. Provide support for people living with HIV in Hong Kong
 3. Build partnerships and capacity for an effective HIV response
 4. Create public advocacy on HIV 

Beneficiaries

Throughout the years, AIDS Concern has been conducting prevention work targeting different high risk communities, including men who have sex with men (MSM), heterosexual men with multiple sex partners, and youth at risk for HIV infection, providing support services to people living with HIV/ AIDS (PLHIV) and their caregivers (spouse, family members, friends, or social workers)

Strengths

AIDS Concern will lead social change by individuals, organisations and society to achieve TRIPLE ZERO, to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and eliminate stigma for people living with HIV.  

What They Do

AIDS Concern's mission is to keep HIV prevalence in Hong Kong low through targeted prevention and care programmes for vulnerable communities, and to reduce the stigma attached to the disease and the communities most affected. We provide support services to people living with HIV/ AIDS (PLHIV) and their caregivers (spourse, family members, friends, or social workers).

Strengths

AIDS Concern will lead social change by individuals, organisations and society to achieve TRIPLE ZERO, to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and eliminate stigma for people living with HIV.  

Facts

An average of 2 people are infected with HIV in Hong Kong every day.    

About

AIDS Concern was established in 1990 as the first non-government charity organisation committed to the service of AIDS care in Hong Kong. Our vision is to see Hong Kong with ZERO new HIV infections, ZERO stigma for people living with HIV and ZERO AIDS deaths. TRIPLE ZERO.
 
We strongly believe that the key to effectively stop the spread of HIV/AIDS is establishing close communication with communities most vulnerable to transmission and exposure.
 
According to our experience, one of the biggest challenges to our mission is the social stigma and discrimination that people living with HIV/AIDS face, which directly affects their quality of life. Hence, we invest our resources into providing public health education and awareness programmes to create a more supportive society by eliminating misunderstandings about HIV/AIDS.
