AIDS Concern Community Inquiry on rising HIV infections in gay and bisexual men


AIDS Concern Community Inquiry on rising HIV infections in gay and bisexual men

 

We are now launching a community inquiry into the rapidly rising number of new HIV infections in Hong Kong among young gay and bisexual men. We will hold interviews, focus groups and community discussions to seek community views on the following key questions:

 

• Why is the Hong Kong HIV epidemic rising so fast among young gay and bisexual men?
• What can be done to reverse the rise in new infections?
• Is there a stronger role for pre-exposure prophylaxis, post-exposure prophylaxis and home testing to stop the epidemic?
• What can different people and organisations do to help work towards Triple Zero Hong Kong? Including people at high risk and people living with HIV?

 

If you are a gay and bisexual man eager to learn more about the most updated information on new HIV prevention measures, or are interested in contributing your views on the rise of HIV infections, please click here and fill in this form so that we can contact you to explain how you can get involved in the community inquiry. Your personal information will be kept confidential and will not be used for any other purpose than communicating with you about the HIV inquiry.

We will publish reports on the findings of the public inquiry and action plans by December 2015. We will also send further updates about this inquiry to our contacts to help everyone understand how they might be able to contribute to this important piece of work.
