World AIDS Day 2018 Countdown
Welcome to World AIDS Day 2018
Under the theme “Red Day” this year, we urged the public to learn about HIV/AIDS knowledge, eliminate the stigma and discrimination towards people living with HIV/AIDS and to build up “Zero Infection for the Next Generation”. The Centre for Health Protection of the Department of Health has just released the latest quarterly figures on the local HIV/AIDS situation in the third quarter of 2018. It showed that there were 156 new HIV infections and the cumulative total of reported HIV infections are 9,543 since 1984. Our professional care team will continue to provide high quality direct patient care services to children, adults and elderly people living with HIV/ AIDS and their care-givers in the community. Therefore, they can seek proper help without fear, and feel better prepared to re-integrate back to the community.
Today (1 December), we organized a public roadshow to introduce the services of SAC and invite the public to take a photo with our Red Ribbon at Haiphong Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (opposite to Haiphong Road Temporary Market cum Cooked Food Hawker Bazaar), at the junction of Argyle Street & Shanghai Street, Mongkok (outside Langham Place) and at Argyle Street, Mongkok (outside Mongkok MTR Station Exit C). Red ribbon, information on SAC’s AIDS enquiry hotline and free HIV & Syphilis testing and introduction of our services were also distributed during the event.
