THE Government's move to set up a $350 million special fund for HIV-positive haemophiliacs was welcomed yesterday but some victims were worried that they would get only a small amount of cash. Mr Macleod announced in the Budget that the fund was for about 61 haemophiliacs who were infected by transfusions of contaminated blood products prior to 1985. It will also help finance a programme of AIDS-related education and publicity to help stop the spread of the killer disease. The move follows a long campaign on the infected haemophiliacs' behalf by the Sunday Morning Post. The Governor, Mr Chris Patten, yesterday said he was delighted with the additional help for haemophiliacs, who he described as one of the neediest groups in the community that deserved greater support and had been the subject of a ''proper and sensitive'' newspaper campaign. No breakdown of the fund was revealed and it is understood the Secretary for Health and Welfare, Mrs Elizabeth Wong Chien Chi-lien, will release more details on Monday. The mother of Ming Tsai, whose plight came to light last December, one year after he was expelled from his school, expressed concern about the offer. ''I am not sure how much will be offered to us. I read news that a boy like my son in Australia got compensation of about $2 million. We cannot say how much we want but it will be too little if it is $200,000 for each, as some newspapers have reported,''she said. ''I hope he can have a small business when he grows up. He is totally ostracised because of this misfortune. He still cannot find a school place now. ''But I am glad to know that the Government has finally promised to offer help. ''I also want the Government to release details of the fund as soon as possible. We just can not wait. One victim, a small boy, is dying in hospital.'' The chairman of the 200-strong Hongkong Haemophiliac Association, known only as Mr Tse, welcomed the Government's decision but said he wanted to know more details before commenting. Mr Tse said the requests from its members ranged from $200,000 to $1 million and they were set to have a meeting on the allowance on March 13. ''We planned it and requested the head of the Hongkong AIDS Foundation, Mrs Peggy Lam Pei Yu-dja, to offer help at the end of last year,'' Mr Tse said. The chairman of AIDS Concern, Ms Lisa Ross, welcomed the prompt response to the demands from the haemophiliacs and hoped to see a timetable for getting ex-gratia payments and the development of support services. Mrs Lam said she was delighted by the $350 million grant and had phoned the victims' parents immediately after the Legco meeting. But she warned that the Government must take urgent action before the HIV victim's problems worsened. Mr Macleod also proposed a grant of $100 million to provide payments to industrial workers suffering from pneumoconiosis, a lung disease contracted by some quarry and textile workers. A $10 million fund would also be established to provide immediate interest-free loans to employees injured in work-related accidents.
