  1. Haemophilia and HIV infection in Hong Kong.

    Article - En anglais

    This is a retrospective study of the problems faced and support received by HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infected haemophilia patients in Hong Kong.

    Between December 1984 and December 1994,63 patients were detected to be HIV positive, out of a total of 231 haemophiliacs screened.

    Infection could be traced back to before August 1985, when safer heat-treated clotting factors were not yet available.

    Psychosocial impacts were obvious in this group of patients because of the double blow of HIV infection and haemophilia.

    Amongst the more evident problems were obstacles in schooling, employment difficulties, and disturbed relationships with family and friends, to mention a few.

    Psychosocial support services have been rendered by both the government and non-governmental organizations in Hong Kong.

    Financial assistance has also been given by the government since April 1993.

    To date, only eleven (17.5%) patients were known to have progressed to AIDS.

    Medical treatment, psychosocial support and financial assistance are integral components of an effective AIDS care programme for HIV-infected haemophilia patients.
