AIDS Concern was established in 1990 as the first non-government charity organisation committed to the service of AIDS care in Hong Kong. The founders were a group of volunteers from different backgrounds dedicated to improving the living standards for people living with HIV/AIDS; and to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS.
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.
We can give a helping hand to people most in need if we have an open society which supports early testing and treatment.
