Abstract

"AIDS was first diagnosed in Hong Kong in 1985. In the last 12 years, the epidemic has evolved both in its magnitude and its pattern. Despite the relatively low incidence of the infection in the local community, its impacts have been far-reaching. Over the years, we witnessed the development of a multitude of responses from the government, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the community - in preventing the spread of the infection, and in the care of those infected. The Advisory Council on AIDS has considered it timely to review our past for the purpose of carving out the future direction of the local programmes. This paper begins with a brief account of local HIV/AIDS situation, followed by a summary of the current programmes provided by the Council, the Government and NGOs in Hong Kong. The purpose of furnishing this report is to create a platform to facilitate discussion on the subject."
