Physical Outreach
The team launches outreach activities in hot spot such clubs, gay bars and gay saunas to promote sexual health education and prevention of HIV/ AIDS, STIs and contraception (heterosexual youth). They also discuss a wide range of topics with youngsters such as relationships and love. They encourage the youth to evaluate on sexual health from a variety of perspectives. The team also collaborates with other outreach staff, working for various other organizations in order to deliver our outreach work in area such as Tin Shui Wai, Tuen Mum, Tsuen Wan and Tsing Yi.


Social Media Outreach
The team communicates with the youth community via the internet on sexual health education, by means of websites, discussion forums, social networking and social dating apps which are popular among youngsters. They discuss, for instance, safer sex, evaluation of relationships and sexual values with the youth in an attempt to promote awareness for sexual health.

Physical Outreach in Gay Hotspots
Our outreach team pays regular visits to gay saunas, bars and gay parties where MSM gathers to promote safer sex and distribute condoms. If necessary, we will transfer them to have HIV antibody testing. By the outreach service, we can have in-depth discussion and further strength the relationship with the community. Through the social relationship, we believe we can stress the importance of preventing AIDS and other Sexually transmitted diseases further.
In our outreach services, we have introduced the concept of game booths to encourage participants to play so that we can attract the community’s attention and interest while broadcasting sex health messages. During major festivals, we will collaborate with main venues to cohost themed activities too.

Physical Outreach in Cross-border Gay Hotspots
Launched in 2008, our preventive measures for cross-border male homexual target at the Pearl Delta with a focus in Shenzhen. With a closer connection between China and Hong Kong (Guangdong province and Shenzhen), sexual consumption increases. We aim at increase male homosexuals' awareness of safe sex when engaging in sexual consumption in China, with an attempting of carrying out earlier cross-border prevention and bringing Hong Kong experience to the Maindland. 

Our current work focus on cross-border MSM community in Hong Kong and the sex partners in China, increasing the knowledge in HIV/ STDs and the usage of condoms. We also set up an enviroment to support safe sex in the websites that are popular in the MSN community. 

Our major target are gay people who cross the Hong Kong- Shenzhen broder. The secondary target is their male sex partners in the Mainland of China. Meanwhile we will carry out outreach services in gay bars, saunas, clubs in Shenzhen, distributing condoms, referring AIDS and STD testing, setting up booth games, and organizing thematic activities. 

At the same time, we will collaborate with the MSM supporting groups of Guangdong province and Shenzhen Disease Control and Prevention for the provision of training.

Internet Outreach
Besides physical outreach, the Internet becomes one of our outreach platforms due to its rapid development and the activeness of MSM online. We hope to promote correct sexual knowledge, safe sex, STD testing and latest information from AIDS Concern though internet outreach. It also serves as a means for PLHIVs to express their feelings and for us to understand the community. 
The diversity of the Internet approach allows us to conduct outreach to various community groups. A MSM targeted website www.men2mentesting.com was set up to introduce our work as well as HIV AIDS/STD knowledge. We also spread safe sex messages to other MSM websites such as logging into chat rooms, answering HIV related questions etc. 

For the convenience of community members, we set up instant messengers (Skype: aidsconcern_msm@hotmail.com; Line: ac.m2m) and social networking platforms (Facebook: www.facebook.com/ac.m2m) to contact with the MSM Team.

Outreach in Social Networks
We launched our online outreach in 2006, in which our Love Angels logged into various websites with adult content, so as to contact with different men to address problems related to AIDS and STIs. We also post posters on a number of discussion forums to inform men about more information about sex and its importance

With the belief that it's crucial to promote sexual health information to male community through mass media campaigns, therefore we endeavor to contact different media, regularly publish sexual health and testing information in adult magazines. We also hold press conferences and publish press release in order to arouse public attention to men's sexual health. With the advances in communicating technology and new media, the team has created mobile applications and website etc. to reach more targets, so that more men can receive information on safe sex and sexual health, conduct self-risk assessment, and online booking for testing services.

Advertising Campaign
The “Anti-Stigma Advertising Campaign” was launched in collaboration with TBWA/ Hong Kong in 2007 and 2008.

Many celebrities were invited to participate as ambassadors, including Mr. Alan Leong, Mr. Daniel Wu, Ms. Nancy Sit, Mr. Eric Kot, Ms. Alice Mak, Mr. Joe Ma, Mr. Raymond Cho, Ms. Sharon Chan, Mr. Sunny Chan, Ms. Angela Tong, and Ms. Yoyo Mung, etc.

The campaign aims to bring the public to evaluate their values and reflect on equal opportunities. The message we wish bring is that for it is the HIV virus itself that must that be isolated, but not the people living with it.

“Animate the positive lifestyle of PLHIV!” Animation Competition
We launched the Animation Competition in 2011 to further spread the message of integration with lively animations created by young people, and to attract more people to visit the Positive Living blog. The winner of the competition was the video ‘Love, Not alone’, made by the students of Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Sha Tin).

Positive Living Blog
The Positive Living Blog was launched together with ‘The Young Agency’ in 2009.‘The Young Agency’is a student body of the School of Communication at the Hong Kong Baptist University.

The blog is an internet based platform with personal stories about PLHIV, knowledge of HIV/AIDS , and positive living tips for PLHIV. The blog aims to improve understanding of PLHIV among the young people and the general public and to provide support for the PLHIV community.

A brand new popular Chinese word ‘’隔虫”(Note: Pronounced “gung” ) was created. It means integration. The word has become our theme to spread the spirit of integration to every part of the world.

To facilitate better communication of the importance and value of sexual health for young people, the participation of the young people themselves is essential. Through the peer training programmes, our well-trained peer educators are able to spread effectively information regarding AIDS and other STIs among their friends. Peer educators can become peer counselors of their social networks. Counselors themselves will come up with more insights regarding sex and relationship.
