Established in Nov 1994, The Society for AIDS Care (SAC) is a non-profit making charitable organization. It is the first NGO in Asia providing high quality patient care services to children, adults and elderly people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV) and their care givers. Our professional service team consists of nurses, social workers, counselors and physiotherapists. We provide both outreach services and center-based services on care and prevention of HIV/AIDS, including drug supervision, therapeutic counseling and physiotherapy. We are committed to provide professional care services to PLHIV to strengthen their self-care ability, build up their self-confidence and vision of positive living, so as to facilitate full community reintegration. At our patient center, we provide a non-judgmental environment in which all patients under care will not be jeopardized because of gender, age, race and sexual orientation. Over the last decades, we have been very successful in integrating and empowering patients through our therapeutic groups. Our active inclusions of LGBT in mainstream care setting services have been effective in engaging wider participation mix in all patients’ groups. Moreover, SAC is also the only organization in Hong Kong that looks after HIV+ children, provides mother-to-child transmission prevention program, women hotline with free HIV testing and a 24 hour emergency hotline for all patients. Hot meals and food are provided for the needed.
