FACTSHEET on PRiSM - HIV Prevalence and Risk Behavioural Survey of Transgender Women in Hong Kong 2017. Centre for Health Protection, Department of Health. (2018)

immage

Male-to-female transgender or transgender women (TGW) has been a neglected and hard-to-reach community, yet various overseas studies have shown that their HIV prevalence can be high. To better study the situation in Hong Kong, Special Preventive Programme of the Department of Health (DH) has included TGW as one distinct at-risk population to be covered in the HIV/AIDS Response Indicator Survey (HARiS, a venue-base survey) since 2014. It is the first time DH included TGW in PRiSM (HIV prevention and risk behavioural survey of men who have sex with men in Hong Kong). As PRiSM is a community-based survey and the participants only need to complete a self-administered online questionnaire, it was hoped that more TGW could be reached. The study aims to update on the HIV prevalence among TGW in Hong Kong, and inform on HIV/STIs preventive interventions and the profile of risk behaviours of local TGW.

FACTSHEET on PRiSM - HIV Prevalence and Risk Behavioural Survey of Men who Have Sex with Men in Hong Kong 2017. Centre for Health Protection, Department of Health. (2018)

immage

Men having sex with men (MSM) have continued or emerged to account for a significant proportion of newly acquired HIV infection in many areas around the world, including Hong Kong. The first PRiSM (HIV prevention and risk behavioural survey of men who have sex with men in Hong Kong) study was conducted in 2006. It was the first community-based MSM and HIV study of its kind in Hong Kong. Designed also as a regular public health surveillance programme to track the epidemic and inform intervention, the survey was repeated in 2008 and 2011. Special Preventive Programme of the Department of Health (DH) conducted this fourth round of PRiSM from April to September 2017. The study aims to update on the HIV prevalence among MSM in Hong Kong, and inform on HIV/STIs preventive interventions and the profile of risk behaviours of local MSM.

AIDS Free Framework to Accelerate Paediatric and Adolescent HIV Treatment. WHO. (2018)

immage

Every child and adolescent living with HIV should have access to antiretroviral therapy (ART). The AIDS Free component of the framework has the specific goal of ensuring 95% of all children and adolescents living with HIV have access to lifelong ART by the end of 2018. These efforts will need to be sustained until 2020, when it is estimated that treating 95% of all children and adolescents living with HIV will require providing ART to 1.4 million children (aged 0-14). and 1 million adolescents (aged 15-19).

Self-testing enables people to test themselves for HIV conveniently and in private. This new testing option may encourage more people to test themselves who previously held back from visiting a testing facility.

Community- and faith-based organizations engaged in HIV prevention and care are learning about HIV self-testing in order to decide how best to use this approach within their work. This brief answers some frequently asked questions.
