Hong Kong Fundraising Campaign

The China AIDS Initiative is helping China reduce Mother-To-Child Transmission of HIV from 33% to <2% in regions stricken by the epidemic.

AIDS has been spreading fast since its first reported case more than two decades ago, with far-reaching implications for mankind. Over the years, the epidemic has caused millions of deaths and devastated the economic, healthcare and social systems of many nations.

In Hong Kong, a group of kind and generous community and business leaders formed the Hong Kong Committee for China AIDS Initiative (CAI), with a view to helping the mainland accelerate its response to HIV and AIDS.

Since its establishment in 2004, the Hong Kong Committee for CAI has enlisted substantial support and allocated funding to a multitude of projects in the mainland, including: children orphaned by AIDS, prevention of mother to child transmission, implementation of AIDS education, improvement of medical care, vaccine development and provision of capacity building and technical support for AIDS healthcare professionals.

In the year 2010, the Hong Kong Committee for CAI will be holding a fundraising dinner in March and showing a TV programme in April, appealing to the community for further support of the AIDS cause and featuring the work done by the Committee and the difference made.

For additional information please contact Ms. Helen Law of the Secretariat to the Hong Kong Committee for CAI at (852) 2560 8528 or helenlaw@hkaf.com.

We look forward to your support and thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.

Yours sincerely,

Of the 42 million people living with HIV worldwide, 3.2 million are children. The virus is passed in utero, during delivery or while breastfeeding at an alarming 33% rate in untreated pregnancies.

香港籌款活動

在受艾滋病肆略的流行区域,中国艾滋病防治行动协助中国将母婴传播感染率由33%降低到2%.

自首個病例在20多年前被發現之後,愛滋病已迅速蔓延,並對人類帶來深遠的影響。多年以來,疫情已造成數百萬人死亡,破壞了多個國家的經濟,醫療保健和社會制度。

在香港,一群慷慨的社區和商界領袖組成中國愛滋病防治行動香港委員會,以期協助內地加快對愛滋病的回應。

中國愛滋病防治行動香港委員會自2004年成立以來,一直努力籌募善款以支持一系列內地項目,包括:幫助愛滋病致孤兒童、阻斷母嬰傳播、推行愛滋病預防教育、改善醫療保健、開發疫苗以及提供培訓和技術支援給愛滋病醫護專業人員。

2010年,中國愛滋病防治行動香港委員會將於3月舉行一個慈善籌款晚宴以及4月播放一個電視節目,鼓勵支持對抗愛滋病及關懷受愛滋病毒感染人士,還會介紹中國愛滋病防治行動香港委員會在內地的工作及其成效。

如有任何查詢,請隨時與委員會秘書處羅嘉鸞小姐聯絡,電話(852) 2560 8528,電郵地址 helenlaw@hkaf.com。 我們期望得到各位的支持及在此先向您們致謝。

謹祝

貴體安康、諸務順懷!

全球三千三百万HIV感染者中,二百一十万是儿童。如果感染的孕妇不经抗病毒药物干预,病毒就会在怀孕、分娩和哺乳时传染给孩子,比率是33%,令人担忧。
