HIV remains a serious threat to the health and lives of people in Hong Kong. In some major cities including San Francisco, London and Sydney the annual HIV infection rate is falling since the start of the epidemic in the 1980s. AIDS Concern is determined and optimistic that we can achieve similar results in Hong Kong and intend to see the HIV infection rate drop significantly in the years ahead. We aim to make Hong Kong one of the first cities in Asia to see the same positive change.
Growing international evidence shows that implementing a combination of proven HIV prevention and treatment measures across high risk groups can substantially reduce new infections.
AIDS Concern will hold a conference Combination HIV prevention strategy: What are the options for Hong Kong? on 19th January 2019 at The University of Hong Kong. The event will bring together medical professionals, community members, leaders and stakeholders who can help plan and deliver HIV combination prevention. The conference will bring international and regional speakers to share their insights and advice about how to bring innovative approaches on combination HIV prevention.
