HIV Switches From 30-Somethings to 20-Somethings in Hong Kong

May 27, 2011

More Hong Kong residents in their 20s are contracting HIV than people in their 30s, government physicians reported Thursday. A lack of awareness of safer sex among the young may be to blame, said Dr. Wong Ka-hing of the Department of Health's Center for Health Protection. Hong Kong logged 103 new HIV infections and 13 new AIDS cases in the first quarter of 2011. It has seen a total of 4,935 HIV infections since 1984 and 1,198 AIDS cases since 1985.
