Abstract

"This paper summarises the activities of the Government in enhancing public awareness on AIDS. HIV/AIDS is a dynamic subject carrying wide social implications. Over the last two decades, there have been significant changes in the local and global HIV situation, its impacts, scientific advances and also the responses of the community. Strategies of the past may not necessarily be appropriate to meet current and future needs.Against the background portrayed in this paper, the Advisory Council on AIDS examined the strategy of promoting public awareness on AIDS in a meeting held on 19 January 2001. Specifically, members: (a) noted the involvement of the Government in promoting public awareness on AIDS; (b) considered the role of the Government on the promotion of AIDS awareness in the last sixteen years, in context of the community’s response and the changing patterns of HIV/AIDS in Hong Kong and internationally; (c) debated on the future strategy that the Government should take on in enhancing public awareness on AIDS."
