School Program - Mask Design Contest

The first contest was organized in 2011. Mask is used as a symbol of identity protection for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) due to the fear of discrimination. Students and public participants are invited to learn more about HIV/AIDS and the challenges PLWHA faced through creating masks, thus to eliminate misconceptions and discrimination.

The masks collected are given to participants of AIDS Walk and other public education events, to encourage them to experience the stress caused by invisible masks of PLWHA.

Education Talk, Public Education & Program

Public training and education in HIV/AIDS are among our key objectives to raise public awareness on HIV/AIDS prevention and acceptance to people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). We regularly organize education exhibition in different districts in Hong Kong. Our SAC Ambassadors, volunteers and staff would introduce our services, promote understanding on HIV/AIDS, distribute red ribbons and leaflets, as well as answer enquiries regarding HIV/AIDS.

Education Talk

Our professional nurses and social workers would provide training on HIV/AIDS prevention and knowledge to healthcare professionals and related parties working in non-government organizations or hospitals, as well as organizing talks at schools and youth centers.

To empower teenagers to understand HIV/AIDS knowledge and have safer sex practice, as well as eliminate discrimination towards PLWHA, we have implemented education program, which drew attention from schools and youth centers.

The interactive program is conducted by trained and experienced staff, including games, role plays, group discussion, condom demonstration, etc.

“Say No to Discrimination!” Masks Exhibition

Exhibitions will be held in different shopping malls and schools to display the outstanding masks designed and handmade by local secondary school students and public who participated in the “Say No to Discrimination!” Mask Design Contest. The masks carried the messages of encouraging public to reconsider HIV/AIDS discrimination and give a hand to PLWHA.

Through showcasing the thoughts of younger generation on the issue of discrimination towards PLWHA, we hope to fight against stigma and discrimination together with the general public.

Announcements in Public Interests

We have successfully applied for government’s Announcements in the Public Interests (API), featuring a TV commercial with the theme of masquerade ball promoting AIDS acceptance. The masks used in filming are the winning submissions in Mask Design Contest. We are grateful to have volunteers from M·A·C and the community to participate in the production. This 30-second video was launched onto TV channels in HK on World AIDS Day in 2014, and continues to broadcast until now.

“Medicine Online” on NowTV (in Cantonese)

Production team of NowTV’s medical documentary program “Medicine Online” came to SAC’s Day Center for a special featured episode “Paradise for PLWHA”. We hope the show would help the public to understand the difficult path PLWHA went through, and thus to accept them with support and care. The program is in Cantonese.

HK-China Exchange and Training Program

HK-China Training Program

The HK-China AIDS Training Program has commenced since 2006, with the aims of promoting good practice in HIV/AIDS care and prevention work, strengthening and encouraging better collaboration in fighting against HIV/AIDS between Hong Kong and China. Different training programs, from theoretical teaching to practical experience, were designed for professionals who are working in the HIV/AIDS field in Mainland China.

Guangxi Family Trip

Our representatives went to the GuangXi Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) in Mar 2015 and attended a sharing meeting with local HIV/AIDS expertise, finding that more than 500 of AIDS children live far away in GuangXi province and therefore they and their care-givers lack of understanding in HIV/AIDS and supports. CDC and SAC jointly organized a GuangXi Family Trip for 60 children and their families in Bama to improve their mutual understanding, as well as strengthen peer supports to relieve their burden.

Henan Province Professional Exchanges

A professional exchange visit to Henan was organized since 2012 to meet with HIV specialist and front line doctors for exchanges and sharing HIV/AIDS situations and related work in HIV prevention and treatment in Hong Kong and Mainland.

In 2016, a meeting with the healthcare professionals including Secretary Ms. Ma Shuhuan, Doctor Zhao Qingxia, and Doctor Sun Yan from the Sixth Civil Hospital of Zhengzhou City was held to introduce the service and development of the hospital. A visit to the Zhengzhou University School of Public Management was also arranged for the first time to discuss about future collaboration.

HK-China Social Work Student Placement Training Program

 

The program was launched in 2011 in collaboration with the School of Public Affairs of Henan Normal University. This program provides placement opportunities for the social work students in SAC to enhance their understanding on HIV/AIDS prevention work in Hong Kong and counseling services for PLWHA.

The students have to attend intensive trainings from our social worker tutors, learning new skills through role play, organizing and implementing targeted activities at Day Center. After the training, they act as trainers to organize talk and events at the University and provide professional services to AIDS orphans and affected children in Henan. There are 34 students successfully completed the training program since 2011.

RTHK's Community Involvement Broadcasting Service

We have been granted funds to produce a radio program (in Cantonese) via the pilot project of “Community Involvement Broadcasting Service” of Radio Television Hong Kong. Our program “Know More about AIDS” is produced to clarify common misconceptions and to raise AIDS awareness in the community.

Through stories from various infected patients, audiences could have a better understanding towards AIDS which is no longer the “death pyramid” in the 1980s. Prevent HIV and safeguard yourself as well as your family, let us take action to build a zero infection future.

The program is in Cantonese. If you wish to listen, please visit: http://programme.rthk.hk/channel/radio/programme.php?name=dab31/g0122_know_more_about_aids&p=6475
