Student-led projects can be an effective intervention for generating HIV-related knowledge and decreasing sexual risk behaviors among adolescents. “Know AIDS, No AIDS” Creative School Projects on HIV/AIDS Prevention was launched in the academic year of 2017/18, recruiting 73 student ambassadors from 8 secondary schools and 2 tertiary institutes, reaching over 6,000 students in their school projects. The list of participating schools include:


The student ambassadors from each school formed a team of 5-8 students, and attended 2-day training for 12-hour in July and August respectively, including sexuality education workshops, condom making workshop and sharing sessions given by AIDS-related and youth service NGOs (Hong Kong AIDS Foundation and Teen’s Key-Young Women Development Network), to acquire knowledge on HIV/AIDS, sexual health and safer sex with a positive attitude.


Applying what they had learnt, the student ambassadors devised creative education projects, including leading the school assembly to sing their originally written song, video / music video production, social experiment, story writing and slogan design contests, riddle and booth games, and panel exhibition, etc., then implemented their project on their own campus to disseminate their anti-HIV/AIDS messages and uploaded snapshots of their project onto the social media to appeal to their peers for better understanding and awareness of HIV/AIDS.

Posts, albums and videos of these projects are available (in Chinese language only) on FPAHK Sexuality Education Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/FPAHK.Education) for public viewing. Please refer to the Chinese version for the details.
