The Society for AIDS Care

The Society for AIDS Care, established in November 1994, is the first non-governmental organization in Asia providing high quality direct patient care services to children, women, adults, elderly people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV) and their care-givers in the community. Our professional team consists of nurses, social workers, counselors and physiotherapists. We provide both outreach and center-based services, including drug supervision, therapeutic counseling, psychological support, physiotherapy, peers support, public education and volunteers training. We are committed to provide professional services to PLHIV to strengthen their self-care ability, build up their self-confidence, so as to facilitate full community reintegration. The Society has a unique Women Phone-in Hotline and Free HIV and Syphilis Testing Service managed by our experienced nurse and social worker. The service is free, voluntary and confidential. A HIV self-testing program using oral swab was lunched to improve the up-take of HIV testing in Hong Kong. The self-testing program is also supported by our hotline service in order to enhance early testing and treatment.
