Publicity and Fundraising Events

Publicity and Fundraising Events

To curb the spread of HIV/AIDS, the involvement and participation of the community is vital. Every year, the Foundation launches a number of territory-wide publicity and fundraising events, aiming to mobilise public participation, promote awareness of HIV/AIDS and raise funds for AIDS education and services.

World AIDS Campaign 2018

On 1 December “World AIDS Day”, we organised a community event at Central Star Ferry Pier (#8) to raise public awareness of HIV/AIDS and to remember those who have died of AIDS. Before the show and candlelight ceremony to mourn the lives lost, we featured a variety of game booths and education panels for the public to learn more about sex education and HIV/AIDS issues.

We were delighted to have the popular singer Siu Hau to be our guest at the event and perform for us. She also kindly participated in an HIV antibody test in a bid to call upon members of the public to undertake an HIV test at least once a year as part of a regular health check-up.

In addition to Siu Hau, the Foundation’s Chairman Dr. Leong Che Hung also kicked off our 2018 TV advertising campaign themed “No misconceptions. No discrimination. This is what LOVE is” along with members of the Executive Board and our Chief Executive, Eris Lau. The main point of our new campaign is to help audiences understand that people living with HIV are still able to have intimate relationships with their partners as long as their own “Undetectable = Untransmittable” level can be reached with HAART treatment and good drug compliance.

We will be holding another fabulous event to commemorate “World AIDS Day” next year so hope to see you all again on December 1, 2019!

Bus Advertising

We created a new word “Sextitude”, which is composed of two words, “Sex” and “Attitude”, to urge the public to keep an open mind yet positive attitude towards sex and to bear in mind the need to use a condom during all sexual intercourse to protect themselves and their partners. The slogan “Love with Sextitude” was promoted through bus advertisement, hoping to spread this positive message in a wider range.

HIV Anti-body Rapid Test Promotion Video

Many people are curious about how does the HIV rapid test work, especially the HIV self-test (home test). We created a short video, introducing the procedures, how rapid tests work and how to read the results correctly:

1. Rapid HIV Antibody Blood Test
The Foundation has always been providing free, anonymous and confidential rapid HIV antibody blood test. Blood drop will be taken from fingertip and result can be seen within 15 minutes.

2. Rapid HIV Antibody Oral Fluid Test
Rapid HIV Antibody Oral Fluid Test allows people doing their own test at home or anywhere they feel convenient. However, without the well-trained staff member’s assistance, comprehensive psychological counselling and follow-up service, users are strongly recommended to pay extra attention to the procedures of oral fluid test.
