since the discovery of the HIV virus in the early 1980s, scientific
advances have progressed at such a remarkable pace that it is hard
to catch up with the latest developments. The Department of Health
Centre for Health Protection joined the Stanley Ho Centre for Emerging
Infectious Diseases of the Chinese University of Hong Kong to produce
an updated HIV Manual, which is officially released on 27 September
One unique feature of the new Manual is its availability
in digital format. HIV Manual 3rd edition is housed at its designated
internet website. For the convenience of mobile phone users, it
can be downloaded as an Android App from Google Play or iPhone App
from iTunes. The print version is in limited supply from Centre for Health Protection.
