WHY WE FOCUS ON THIS TOPIC
HIV infection among ethnic minorities has drawn attention to the Hong Kong Advisory Council on AIDS on their Recommended HIV/AIDS Strategies for Hong Kong (2017-2021).
AIDS CONCERN’S POSITION
Language barrier and lack of education lead to late diagnosis for ethnic minorities.
In order to allow easier access to the local healthcare system for ethic minorities, AIDS Concern will draft a position paper on safeguarding the rights of ethnic minorities living with HIV in order to advocate a friendlier public health environment.
