Teenagers are in danger of contracting Aids due to the popularity of drugs, according to youth workers. Although there is no research in Hong Kong that shows a direct correlation between contracting Aids and drug abuse among young people, drugs expose teenagers to the risk of unsafe sex, said Neda Ng Hei-tung, assistant prevention officer at Aids Concern. 'The problem of drug abuse has become serious in recent years. Some teenage drug-takers we have talked to have experienced sexual diseases or abortion.' As a result, Ms Ng and her colleagues at Aids Concern will visit teen-friendly places, like discos and parks in Mong Kok and Tai Po, to counsel teenagers, mostly under the age of 17, about sexual health and other related issues. They will also set up booths in Sheung Shui KCR station and the Lok Ma Chau bus station to hand out condoms and pamphlets about Aids and sexual health. Ms Ng added that many teenagers who frequent discos or other entertainment venues at night are quite open about sex. 'At their age they will take precautions to avoid getting pregnant, but they are not generally concerned about sexual diseases and Aids,' she said.
