To make the education work a comprehensive one, the Foundation targets its services vis-à-vis the characteristics of different groups including the general public, young people and populations at higher risk to HIV infection.
The Foundation implements various educational activities such as district campaigns, open forums, exhibitions, seminars, fair days, and contests to educate the general public in HIV/AIDS and raise their awareness of the infection.
The Foundation has formed a Promotion and Education Team (PET), making up of a group of enthusiastic volunteers. PET implements AIDS education in various districts to enhance AIDS awareness and promote care and support for PLHIV.
Integrated Activities on AIDS and Sex Education for Youth
We believe that education is one of the keys to effective prevention of HIV and have all along been placing great emphasis on preventive education for youth. Hence, we have launched “Integrated Activities on AIDS and Sex Education for Youth”. Through different activities, the programme is aimed at enhancing students’ knowledge of HIV prevalence in Hong Kong and the world; and inspiring them to think about their responsibility as global citizens and establish healthy and responsible attitude towards sex.
