    On Thursday's Backchat, we're talking about Hong Kong's goal to eradicate AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.

    The objective was laid out on Tuesday in a five-year strategy released by the Hong Kong Advisory Council on Aids, in line with the goal set out by the United Nations Programme on HIV and Aids, to end the disease as a public health threat.

    So far in the first 9 months of this year, Hong Kong has recorded 307 new HIV infections, of which 53 involved a diagnosis of Aids.

    And homosexual contact among men make up a high proportion of HIV infections, followed by het-erosexual contact and drug use via injection.

    So what are the main challenges in eradicating AIDS as a public health threat? Can it be done over the next 8 years?

    After 9.15am, we will look at the government's plan to revamp cross-harbour tunnel fares.

    And at 9.25am, we'll be joined by RTHK sports correspondent Atom Cheung with the latest on the World Cup.
