Welcome to AIDS INSTITUTE

The AIDS Institute of the University of Hong Kong was established in November 2007 to take HKU in a new strategic direction in fighting this global epidemic and help to make it a leader in the region in AIDS research, education and prevention. Scientists at the AIDS Institute are fully committed to conducting basic and applied research that facilitates the understanding of AIDS pathogenesis and the development of effective AIDS vaccines. Activities in the Institute include: basic research to examine the virological and immunological mechanisms underlying HIV pathogenesis; new concept, design, preparation and laboratory testing of vaccine candidates for HIV and other infectious diseases; and monitoring the evolution of HIV epidemic in Hong Kong and in the region.

Hiv Manual 3rd Edition(2013)

Dr . Zhiwei Chen was invited to contribute one chapter, titled “HIV virology and immunology”, to the HIV Manual for medical practitioners and students in Hong Kong. The HIV Manual (HIV Manual 3rd edition) will be able to view via below channels:

1. Web version is now housed in the Manual's new homepage at http://www.hivmanual.hk/.

2. Two Apps versions have been created. The Android one can be accessed through Google Play. This is the URL http://goo.gl/IORMfC . You can also find the QR code on the Manual's main page. The iPhone version can be found in iTune Store.

3. Print versions are prepared by the Department of Health .

4. Virtual Link to an interactive table on all antiretrovirals. This tool has been developed separately. This is available from http://www.antihivmed.hk/ and is also linked to the Manual.

5. A facebook page would also be created, which would facilitate the collection of comments, or picking up errors and advice to improve the Manual in the coming years. The content development, web and Apps are funded by Council for the AIDS Trust Fund, while the hard copy is supported by Department of Health. These would be available free to users, which hopefully include health workers and students.
