Sexual health education with the youth community in Hong Kong
In Hong Kong, the high HIV and STI prevalence among the youth population points to the lack of and poor sex education in schools. With that in mind, AIDS Concern Hong Kong launched a prevention and education project in 2019, aiming to equip vulnerable youths with the right knowledge, skills and attitude to tackle HIV and STIs. To optimize reach, AIDS Concern also adopted a youth-friendly approach with a social media outreach campaign.
AIDS Concern was established in 1990 as the first non-government charity organization committed to the service of AIDS care in Hong Kong. Our founders were dedicated to improving the living standards for people living with HIV; and to stop the spread of HIV. AIDS Concern facilitates public health education and awareness programs to eliminate misunderstandings about HIV/AIDS and create a more supportive society for early testing and treatment.
