Starting with the performances by students in San Sin High School of Commerce And Home Economics and Shin Shing High School, "Integrated Health Center of Healing, Empowerment, Recovery Of Chemsex (HERO)" opening press conference took place in November 27th with Tsai, Po-Ying, Kaohsiung City Government's Deputy Secretary General, as the master of ceremony. Disease control partners including Officers from Centers for Disease Control, Ministry of Health and Welfare and heads of Kaohsiung City's Department of Health, Education Bureau, Social Affairs Bureau, and Civil Affairs Bureau, and NGOs all attended the ceremony to show our solidarity for AIDS control.

Concerning the upward trend of recreational drugs use among young people has become a new challenge of AIDS control. Following problems include unstoppable addiction, meaningless life, depression, and consequential social problems. Therefore, Kaohsiung City's Department of Health leads Kaohsiung Municipal Min-Sheng Hospital, Kai-Syuan Psychiatric Hospital, and Taiwan Love and Hope Association to establish "Integrated Health Center of Healing, Empowerment, Recovery Of Chemsex (HERO)". HERO is Taiwan's first health center that integrates public health, clinical treatment, and NGOs in order to provide full professional services and control AIDS as soon as possible.

It is again reminded by Department of Health that AIDS control is an important issue that entire world is paying attention to. The disease is still incurable, but AIDS virus has been controllable. Our society should care about patients more and diminish discrimination. AIDS control requires our participation. Where there is no virus, there is no infection. We should have correct knowledge about AIDS control and let more people care about AIDS control issues. Our purpose is "3 NOs": no new case, no discrimination, and no death.
