Other Activities - Hong Kong & Cambodia Love with Care School Project

The Society for AIDS Care (SAC) and KHEMARA Cambodia have completed their joint project with enormous success last year! To continue our support in empowering students in the less developed countries in HIV care and prevention, we have commenced another 12-month joint school project, Love with Care School Project: HIV/ AIDS Prevention and Sexual and Reproductive Health Campaign. The project aims to increase the knowledge of HIV prevention and sexual reproductive health for school age children, in order to reduce the prevalence of HIV. Testing and counseling services will also provide to ensure all seropositive patients and those with sexual reproductive health issues can receive medical attention. The representatives of SAC and KHEMARA have signed an agreement and kicked off the project in October 2019.This year, the project will take place at two Secondary-High Schools in Tbong Khmum district, Tbong Khmum province, and in Peam Chileang, Thma Pechr, and the project will reach over 1,000 students directly.

Other Activities - The Research of “Effects of Supervised Exercise Program on Physical Health and Quality Life in the People Living with HIV”

A pilot study has been done by SAC on twenty-one participants with HIV, ages 56-84 years old. They were randomized into either the exercise group or the control group. The exercise group performed an eight-week supervised exercise program while the control group remained their usual daily activities. The Short Form 36 – Health Survey, grip strength, 30 seconds chair stand and six-minute walk test were measured as the outcomes. Our results showed that compared to the control group, the exercise group who were under supervised exercise program showed significant improvement in their physical health and reported better quality of life. In addition, this study has also been selected for a poster presentation on The third Asia Pacific Conference on AIDS and Co-infection (APACC). The study, “Chung, CH and Lou, VWQ (2019). Effects of Supervised Exercise on Physical Health and Quality of Life Among Older Adults Living With HIV in Hong Kong. Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care, May 14, Volume Publish Ahead of Print - Issue - p. doi: 10.1097/JNC.0000000000000099.” has been shared online, please visit the below link for more details. https://journals.lww.com/janac/Citation/publishahead/Effects_of_Supervised_Exercise_on_Physical_Health.99931.aspx

Have you ever thought how miserable it could be if one found herself being infected with HIV during pregnancy? Normally for a pregnant woman, it is a joyful experience to look forward to a new page in life with her born baby. However, the sky falls on the mom if she was told she was HIV +. She is often left helpless, in despair and afraid to tell anyone of her predicament. Fortunately as medicine advances, pregnant women infected with HIV can give birth to a HIV-free baby.

To celebrate our 20th anniversary, a special SAC MILK MILK Saving Bank was designed by a volunteer contemporary illustrator Dorophy Tang to collect love & blessings as well as encourage public to make donation in supporting our “Mother-to-Child Transmission Prevention” Program, building a future of Zero Infection for the Next Generation.
